It's already happening. The criminals have stolen Tiger AND iLife '05 for Intel PCs. But it's of no long-term use: no support, no upgrades. Really only good for devs, and as a geek toy... and as a sneak preview of the BETTER way to compute? EDIT by Nagromme: Please do NOT discuss sources and techniques here. It's illegal and against forum guidelines. It really does seem like Apple LET this happen. They could never prevent it totally, not with these simple dev boxes, but they COULD make it very HARD to do. Instead, they did nothing to stop it. Are they that stupid? I agree with this writer--probably not: http://www.shapeofdays.com/2005/06/mac_os_x_on_int.html Also--it gives Apple a free beta test of sorts, and gives Microsoft the shakes Future versions will be more protected I'm sure--Apple won't lose hardware sales, and they won't bloat OS X by TRULY supporting those other widely varied hardware setups. Still... Leopard vs. Longhorn will be interesting. I sent this to MacBytes too, but I thought the forum folks might have some interesting thoughts.
