Editorial A reader asks: "Can someone comment on the legality of using my brother's old Snow Leopard DVD to install OS X? My brother has Lion, so why can't he choose to give it to me? It doesn't violate Apple's 1 license per 1 computer policy."

I always wondered why nobody has started a Psystar-like business in Europe and Asia, where the DMCA doesn't apply. Sell the computer without an OS, and make it so that the the OS Xinstall disc thinks the computer is a mac (and that the computer has mac-compatible peripherals), so that no special tricks are need. Then, all the user has to do is pick up an OS X disc, and install it.
