Hardware, Embedded Systems When Psystar announced it Rebel EFI package, the company was quickly accused of simply taking open source code, repackaging it, and selling it for USD 50. While selling open source code is not a problem, not making the source code available if the license demands it is. Netkas, famous OSX86 hacker, and a Russian site are now claiming they have found the smoking gun.

"Um, why is that bad?

Because you don't have to use iTunes in order to use Quicktime; therefore, it makes no sense to bundle iTunes with a Quicktime security update. It's yet another sleazy way for Apple to get their crappy iTunes software on the machine
"

Has anyone ever wanted to install Quicktime on Windows outside of installing iTunes?

(sarcasm, hyperbole...)

Except that what the OP said was "bundling quicktime security updates with iTunes." Formed this way, the sentence reads that the issue was that quicktime updates were included with iTunes. If the point was actually that iTunes is being bundled with quicktime updates, then I'm in full agreement. However, that's not how the sentence read to me. Word order is important in English. ;)

You're right. I could have formulated that sentence better. ;)
