Apple ExtremeTech is featuring a How-To on building an OSx86 MacIntel machine that boots both OS X and Windows. On the same hardware, OS X booted almost three times faster than Windows, yet was a disappointment when playing certain games. Update: One more article about it.

Breaking a contract is illegal. The EULA is a contract.

Why don't you quote this law? Breach of contract is not in itself in any way illegal. It's a civil matter between the two parties involved in the contract. If you and I signed a contract saying you where not allowed to wear blue on tuesdays, and you broke that contract you would not be going to jail.

I can not read EULA before I buy a box. This makes such contrac invalid. Also, when I pay for it, it's mine. I can use it as a doorstop if I please.

Kellym, got to understand the difference between civil and criminal law in Anglo Saxon jurisdictions. It is not illegal to break a contract. However, the contract holder may in civil suit obtain a judgment against you, and if so, failure to comply may lead to contempt of court, and THAT is criminal. But it was not the breaking of the contract which was a crime. Think about it. All kinds of crazy contracts would be made criminal offences to break. Can't work that way.

Look up contract law, tort, criminal and civil - you'll see for yourself. You're letting your eagerness to defend the company, if that's what it is, get in the way of common sense.
