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."

"When I use an Apple, Microsoft, or any other product which comes with a contract, then I have an agreement with that company."

That is because you view that as an agreement between the two of you. I view that as a "forced to accept agreement" of use and that is NOT what I agreed to when I purchased the product.

That you view the "thank you for buying our product, now here's how WE allow YOU to use it" after purchase as valid is your issue but I see it as very unethical behavior and as I have the right NOT to adhere to that here in europe then I see that as VERY ethical and a moral obligation to oppose this the right way, by using their product the way I see fit and stick it to "the man". Not buying and whining is valid too but does NOTHING to further the rights of those that for various reasons adhere to the so called "agreement".

Now if I had to agree to the contract BEFORE I purchased the product THEN we're talking different matters. However, some things are not legally enforcable even if you agree before purchase (the "right to your firstborn if you agree" type)
