    After Apple trying to charge me £5.99 for a damn firmware update (which enables features they were too lazy or cunning to add from day one) I say GO PSYSTAR! Apple need to be reminded that they are not untouchable!

    I agree the EU should step in, Microsoft got bitch slapped now its Apple's turn to get bruised.

    Yeah, I don't think that's Apple - it's something to do with a law preventing them giving updates to things that aren't subscription based? I don't really know the details. I read it somewhere. Probably on a forum. Written by a chimp. On drugs.

    There's loads of guff here: http://forums.macworld.com/message/615046

    great news

    someone needs to not let apple get away with ripping people off with their proprietary software. they should sell their software to anyone that can run it. apple is afraid it will lose its price premium if someone comes in and offers much better hardware at a much cheaper price. competition is a good thing, artificially creating barriers to entry is monopolistic. let them come in and offer a "inferior product", you wont have to support it, it wont tarnish your image, it wont even take profits away; it will just open up the lower spectrum of the market to another product. hell it will even open up more locations to sell ilife and all that other crap.

    Im divided here. as far as ethics im on there side, if windows only ran on hardware bought from microsoft the world would jump there **** however because apple is so small they get away with it, so therefore apple is a monopoly as well. However if you are casio and you make calculators and you write software that rocks at calculations and adds good features then you can have it only run on your calculators obviously with no question of monopoly. So is apple a hardware company and a software company like microsoft or is it a product company that only creates 1 product a mac not a computer+ osx? thats the question that needs a answer

    To 1ad7 here: Apple believes it's selling a complete product that consists of a Macintosh computer + its own Mac OS X as the operating system. They should not be used separately. You could think of Mac OS X as a firmware.

    Go PSYSTAR!
