FWIW - I have a MacBook Pro with OS X. I want to run qubes on my MacBook Pro, and OS X inside qubes. OS X is the running on genuine Apple hardware. No license agreements broken. Cheers. I am not arguing that this is a good use case to work on for Qubes developers, just saying that the license argument is untrue. Sadly, getting Qubes to run on Apple hardware isn't super easy either. -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "qubes-users" group.
