Legal Earlier today we reported that while Apple doesn't encourage it, the Snow Leopard upgrade disk can be used to upgrade machines that have Mac OS 10.4 Tiger installed as well. However, this is actually forbidden by the accompanying EULA, which raises an interesting question: do you have any moral problems ignoring said EULA? And on a more general note, do you actually care about any EULA at all?

I have adopted a pretty simple point of view.

If I make money off of the software, I'll play by the stated terms and agree with them.

But if it's for personal use, I'll use it as I see fit.

That is my perspective also. On a home PC, what does it really matter? No police (or lawyers) will beat down your door for infringing on an EULA.

In a business environment, that is a completely different story although you would not likely be caught.
