Circuit Judge Mary Schroeder wrote in her opinion that Apple's Mac OS X licensing agreement was indeed enforceable against Psystar, which had sold non-Mac computers with Mac OS X installed.

For starters, I don't live in the United States, so yes...it's just some judge to me. But even if I did, I would, on a matter of principle, install OS X on a non-Apple computer and then affix a sticker with "Apple" on it, so as not to violate the EULA. The law is the law, afterall. ;)



2. Permitted License Uses and Restrictions.
A. Single Use. This License allows you to install, use and run one (1) copy of the Apple Software on a single Apple-labeled computer at a time.
