Mac OS X If you want to run Mac OS X on a standard, non-Apple-labelled x86 box, you have various options. You can go all creative and build and install one yourself, and then be weary when installing updates from Apple. You can also buy a Mac clone from PsyStar, and then be weary of Apple's crack team of lawyers. A third option has just become available: EFI-X.

How have we managed to get into the situation where people accept -- and in some cases even defend! -- software companies being able to tell us what to do *after we've bought their product*, in a way that would be completely unacceptable for any other type of product?


Some of us write software. Some of us respect the law and recognize that we'd be in trouble without it. Sometimes those people intersect, sometimes not.
