I think an important point is that you loose support from Apple if you're not installing Mac OS X on Apple brand hardware. As for the license agreement, if you buy Mac OS X from the shelf (for example), you've not confirmed any contract-like agreement with Apple yet, but you've purchased some rights already, for example the right to burn the whole package (not a nice example but I'm sure you get the idea); the EULA mentions nothing about this (legally possible) behavior. The Mac OS X versions sold along with the "Hackintosh" are no illegally pirated copies, they're "boxes" from the shelf. It's up to the customer what to do with it. -- Polytropon >From Magdeburg, Germany Happy FreeBSD user since 4.0 Andra moi ennepe, Mousa, ... _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
