Editorial A couple of years ago, a professor at my university had a very interesting thought exchange with the class I was in. We were a small group, and I knew most of them, they were my friends. Anyway, we had a talk about language purism - not an unimportant subject if you study English in The Netherlands.

RE: What an absurd conclusion.

What Windows and Linux users are doing is making a vote of no confidence when they steal Mac OSX and install it on their Hackintoshes.

What Maclots are doing is admitting desperation when they resort to lazy generalizations and try to imply that all Hackintosh users are thieves.

This is just about money to Apple. Mac OSX exists only to sell Apple hardware. Apple cannot afford to sell Mac OSX at the upgrade price of $129.

So if they can't afford it, then why DOES Apple sell a full version for $129? A complete lack of business sense?

What Psystar is doing is stealing money out of Apple's pockets.

How is it stealing when they PAID for the copies of OS X that they resell? It's not stealing just because you and other Apple fanbois don't like the way Psystar uses the product they paid for.

Perhaps, it is a self justification to cover your immorality.

Funny, creationists use the exact same reasoning (that people only believe in evolution to justify their immoral lifestyles). And it looks equally-desperate when you do it; it's painfully obvious that you'll latch on to any pretense to vilify Psystar and their supporters, no matter how flimsy.

Perhaps Psystar makes you feel defensive because they threaten the notion that owning an Apple PC somehow makes you "special" (see what I did there?).
