Legal When PsyStar announced they would be offering their own Macintosch clone, pre-installed with Apple's Mac OS X Leopard, they opened up a whole can of worms. Despite the fact that the company itself was shrouded in mystery and dubiousness, the possible implications of their actions sparkled an interesting debate here on OSNews as well as other discussion venues: can PsyStar and its users just discard Apple's End User License Agreement for Leopard? Instead of relying on my own limited layman's understanding of Dutch Common Law, I decided to contact Dutch legal experts, and ask for their opinions on Apple's EULA, and EULAs in general.

Because of people like you is that Linux dos not get the support of the hardware and software manufacturers. Always trying to steal or rip-off something.
If you Linux guys like OS X so much, then, have your people write code that resembles it. By the way, I remember reading a long while ago in the Gnome web site, that their intent was to create a desktop that would look like Apple. Go figure!


I specifically mentioned retail copy of Leopard, implying that it was paid for and not pirated. Please don't always assume Linux user == pirate.
