Editorial A reader asks: "Can someone comment on the legality of using my brother's old Snow Leopard DVD to install OS X? My brother has Lion, so why can't he choose to give it to me? It doesn't violate Apple's 1 license per 1 computer policy."

Part of the explanation could be that OSX has much smaller traction in most of the world than too many pundits and web-loud people, living in few atypical places, realize (just go through Statcounter region and country stats). Making it not only not-so-attractive (more just "weird"), even simply not very known (plus, in some places, there might be quite recent ~bad association - like with ending of: http://www.osnews.com/permalink?489120 )
OTOH, people who do prefer Apple in such places, seem to treat them as a status symbol much more than is usual (doesn't work with hackintoshes)

Anyway, quickly glancing at Wiki does give something... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PearC (plus few other without Wiki pages at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OSx86 )
