For many times since the mid-90's I had the opportunity to buy an Apple, and not having the hardware configuration I want, always led me to reward other vendors.

That's okay, but some people still value OS X and the whole Apple ecosystem (rightly or wrongly is beside the point here).

Also, an Hackintosh can run OS X and anything else you throw at it -- Mavericks and FreeBSD for me (with FreeBSD playing the role of the "main" OS on that computer).

And they show it by defrauding Apple in hardware sales.

Nice way to show how much those people value the Apple ecosystem.

Sorry, but you're missing the point. I clearly stated that I have a Mac Mini from 2007 (and a souped up Mac Pro from 2008 that could run Yosemite but sits unused, so I didn't mention it). Others have said that they're Mac owners too, but with requirements not satisfied by what's on offer.

In other words: if Apple prefers to ignore them/us I'm not going to feel bad about building an Hackintosh which, if nothing else, proves that there's an interest for a proper desktop at "desktop prices" -- and let's not forget that Apple is still making money from us with iTunes, the App Store and possibly even iPhones and iPads.
