The question is - why is Apple not suing ZDNet's arse off? Publicity! If people are running bootleg copies of OSX on their Dell, who cares, it will only help Apple. There will be so many little problems with using a hacked version, they will eventually want the real thing and buy a Mac. -Bam- Steve Jobs gets another ivory backscratcher. It's part of the plan.

 

Brilliant marketing.

What you say makes perfect sense to me.

 

You know how PCs sometimes have stickers on them saying things like "Designed to be Infested with Windows XP"?

 

Some clever person should make up a sticker that says "Designed for Hacked OS X".

 

Think of the Cafe Press store, with Tshirts and coffee mugs and even mouse pads that all say "Designed for Hacked OS X". Why it could be a regular cottage industry.

 

And of course, whatever hurts Microsoft is good for the computing public.

That's a great idea! Quick, trademark that phrase! Wait... hehe, don't - I will!
