Don't know if it's legal, but you can ask Psystar Corporationthe company that was selling Mac Clones that was crushed under the foot of Apple for doing so. So, who wants to talk about anti-competitive practices?
Personally, I don't care how good any Mac software/hardware (ooppss, it's not apple hardware anymore), appears to be ( i have an Ipod and first chance I get I'm getting rid of it for something else, possibly a ZuneHD) I will never own Apple anything ever again. I absolutely hate, hate Itunes, and Apple is so friggin proprietary that no one can design a full featured Itunes replacement.
It's a shame too, cause the iPod is a nice piece of tech, too bad it is crippled by closed source app, that has a tenancy to wipe itself clean for absolutely no reason at all, when logging into the store.
And from what I understand, the Hackintosh doesn't completely work as a mac itself does either.
So, I say,, M$ is bad? Really? ,,, And OSX runs on intel based hardware that you pay top dollar for because the OS is designed to run with this particular hardware, therefore the hardware should cost more, because it runs OSX. Yippee
Talk about scumbags. Apple is the company of true greedy scumbags, who truly over charge for their products, because they can, not because they have to.
