Editorial A couple of years ago, a professor at my university had a very interesting thought exchange with the class I was in. We were a small group, and I knew most of them, they were my friends. Anyway, we had a talk about language purism - not an unimportant subject if you study English in The Netherlands.

What an absurd conclusion.

What Windows and Linux users are doing is making a vote of no confidence when they steal Mac OSX and install it on their Hackintoshes.

This is just about money to Apple. Mac OSX exists only to sell Apple hardware. Apple cannot afford to sell Mac OSX at the upgrade price of $129. If it were to sell to PC owners it would need to charge around $500 and this would reduce the desire for conversion.

What Psystar is doing is stealing money out of Apple's pockets. Why shouldn't Apple complain about that?

So, why do you take something as reasonable as economics and turn it upside down? Why do you make this a lack of Apple's? Perhaps, it is a self justification to cover your immorality.
