    Hey

    I was just thinking the other day. Did Apple do anything special or out of their way to make sure people didn't install pirated copies of windows on their macs. Someone told me that they did. Any comments?

    I don't think that Apple did anything, but that doesn't mean that it is ok to go out and pirate software.

    I'll tell you how but I have to encode it in binary. (you know, so it doesn't get traced to me). Just do a google search for binary decoder (or something like that).
    Code:
    011010000111010001110100011100000011101000101111001011110111010001101001011011100111100101110101011100100110110000101110011000110110111101101101001011110111011101101000011001010011010001100100

    I can confirm that they did not, well windows vista ultimate sucked anyway so I deleted it. To the person wondering about where to get micro***** vista, check out bittorrent.

    Apple installs a conscience in each Mac. Each one is different, but most will close their CD/DVD drives tightly at the prospect of being fed a burned CD of Windows.
