Mac OS X Apple has finally released Mac OS X 10.6.2, the latest version of its Snow Leopard operating system, and be prepared for a massive update for your Mac: 473MB. There's a lot of stuff in here, and among other things, it includes a fix for the guest account data loss bug.

How many people would support Microsoft if they suddenly released SP4 for XP (and SP1 for Vista), and announced that you could no longer run the operating system on non-Microsoft approved hardware? And what if that hardware was only available from companies that paid a license fee to Microsoft?

After all, this was the doomsday scenario when TPM was introduced that had everyone in a panic.

Or, what if GPLv4 declared that you couldn't use GPL software on any hardware not deemed "open" by the FSF?

Would people support Microsoft, or the Free Software Foundation in this case?

Why are shrinkwrap licenses and EULA's evil (and worth lawsuits) when they're written in Redmond, but not in Cupertino?
