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."

In a scenario where Apple will sell MacOS without hardware Apple would probably charge x4-x6 the price.

Most threads I read about people hackintoshing is those that really want to run Logic, Quark or final cut but cant afford a Mac.
If they add the price of those software with a Mac pc it comes into a hefty amount. And many just cant afford it.
Those people are quite willing to buy Logic ect. on their own but just cant with the hardware tie in.
