Legal Apple has the right to continue restricting its operating systems to its own hardware thanks to a decision handed down by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals on Wednesday. Circuit Judge Mary Schroeder wrote in her opinion that Apple's Mac OS X licensing agreement was indeed enforceable against Psystar, which had sold non-Mac computers with Mac OS X installed.

rhavyn...if tupp is correct, that the Supreme Court has already overturned EULA's, then it is doubtful that this Appeals Court judge is the final arbiter on EULA's.

In short, it's doubtful to me that one lousy judgement by a man who wears a wig and and a gown for a living can overturn what has already been established in other cases. It can also not be said outright that EULA's rule the universe, as you seem to be saying.

I have no doubt you are accurately quoting the language of the judgement...I think you're just a little too much in awe of this one ruling.
