Hardware, Embedded Systems There are several options out there if you wan to run Mac OS X on your non-Apple labelled computer, but one of them appears to be in serious trouble. It has been uncovered that the EFI-X module is nothing more than a USB stick with a DRM chip, with code from the hackintosh community on it - without attribution. On top of that, its firmware update utility uses LGPL code - again, without attribution.

There is the misconception that anyone who steals from the rich will give to the poor. Most of the time it is Steal from the Rich and steal from the poor until you are rich.

A Problem within the Open Source Community is a general disregards to other licenses, open closed etc...

The Open Source Community should really be the biggest voice against software piracy. Because if people respect other licenses they will also respect theirs.


What kind of garbage is this. The open source community exists because of the regards they have for others license. They refuse to be bound by proprietary license so they write their own code and give it away. instead of blatantly using proprietary code and disregarding the license. What kind of buffoonish statement is that. my goodness
