Mac OS X It seems like flee-in-Apple's-fur, cracker 'Maxxuss', has succeeded in cracking Mac OS 10.4.4 for Intel. "We were just about to hunker down and wait through the cold winter and a wet spring until we saw some results on the OS X 10.4.4 for Intel hacking efforts, but it looks like we're getting a little Valentines present from 'Maxxuss' who has already broken through Apple's heightened security that is present in their shipping version of the OS. It's just a preliminary release, not all hardware is supported and it requires a bit of futzing around to get it to work, but seeing as we weren't expecting this kind of breakthrough this early, we really can't complain."

Its the vendor saying, if you want to use my product, you must promise to do such and such.
I applaud the fact that you are a man of your word. Most people are not. They also blame shift everything. (ex: "it's the vendors fault I broke my promise!")

However, both viewpoints cannot be valid. They are opposing viewpoints that cannot logically be equal.
One involves keeping a promise. The oter involves breaking a promise.

Speaking of which, if everyone that bought the software broke the agreement, the vendor might get angry enough to start enforcing the agreement.
If people were more honest, and kept their word, and did not use software that they were going have to make a bad agreement on, then the venor could not enforce it, because you did not agree to it and they would have to make a new license.
