Games Remember that little legal spat going on between Apple and Psystar? That one's been more or less wrapped up, with Apple being the sole victor there. The dust from that case has barely had time to settle, and already we see another company quoting it to support its own restrictive, anti-consumer practices. The company in question? Ha, it's Microsoft.

That brings up an interesting point.

There are some conspiracy theories that Apple was behind Psystar - that Apple created Psystar specifically to be sued, and set precedent.

Of course, who ever seriously thought MICROSOFT was behind Psystar? The only reason I could see MS being behind Psystar is if they wanted to strengthen EULAs as well - first sale being nullified has some pretty interesting positive consequences for MS. Psystar winning would've hurt EULAs, which MS doesn't want.
