Legal While the Apple v. Psystar case is currently on hold until the hearing regarding the motions for a summary judgement takes place (November 12) the Psystar v. Apple case (still with me?) is only just beginning. Psystar has amended its original complaint in this second lawsuit, asking the judge to order Apple to cease calling Psystar's business "illegal", claiming it hurts the clone maker financially.

This is about our right to run the OS we want on the hardware we want. It's importance cannot be understated. I don't want to be in a future where you can be jailed just for daring to look under-the-hood.

Personally, I think Psystar is a sleazy company and always has been, compared to other cloners; but I'm glad that at least _somebody_ has taken things this far in court.


Moron,*YOU DON'T* have the right to run the OS we want on the hardware *YOU* want unless it's a GPL'd OS like Linux or something similar where you are granted permission to do so.

The sooner parasites like yourself are rounded up and tossed into the prison cell where you and those like belong the better off the *REAL* FreeSoftware/OpenSource moment will be.

You alt 2600 warezing assholes did enough damage by getting involved with the DeCSS trial.

Do us all a favor and f--k off now....

Where do you base your claims? Do you say EULAs are always valid and can and should be enforceable? If so then it'd be interesting to hear some arguments as to why you think so.

Besides, do you understand the implications of such? If EULAs were indeed found to be legally binding then do expect to start seeing EULAs in DVDs, CDs, electronic books and so on.

You alt 2600 warezing assholes did enough damage by getting involved with the DeCSS trial.

How do you know that they use illegal copies? I've seen several people mentioning that they've actually bought a retail copy of OSX and used that.

Do us all a favor and f--k off now....

And you are somehow better than all others just simply because you can throw out a whole bunch of baseless insults at people and don't back up a single of your claim with any kind of an argument?

Are you for real? If you think the GPL has certain virtues for freedom, then please kindly explain them, but don’t talk to anybody on this site like how you have, especially staff.

Good God, man. What is WRONG with you? This is a discussion. There's no need for name-calling. Given the diverse set of people here on OSNews, you can't expect everyone to agree with you. But at least show a modicum of respect.
