Default Why Yes Apple, You Can Restrict OS X to Your Own Hardware

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://arstechnica.com/apple/news/2011/09/appeals-court-apple-can-continue-to-restrict-os-x-to-mac-hardware.ars?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=rss' target='_blank'>http://arstechnica.com/apple/news/2...tm_campaign=rss</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"Apple has the right to continue restricting its operating systems to its own hardware thanks to a decision handed down by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals on Wednesday. Circuit Judge Mary Schroeder wrote in her opinion that Apple's Mac OS X licensing agreement was indeed enforceable against Psystar, which had sold non-Mac computers with Mac OS X installed."</em></p><p><img height="400" src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/adt/auto/1317323916.usr105634.jpg" style="margin-left: 100px; margin-right: 100px;" width="400" /></p><p><em>Image Credit: AppleTell</em></p><p>Of course, the home enthusiasts can still "do-it-yourself" with kits that companies sell or by going online at any number of sites to get the how to instructions. At least it is very doubtful Apple would go after individuals, unless they started doing it commercially I suppose. Personally I'm glad for this since it keeps the ecosystem closed, so I know, for the most part, that software and hardware are going to mesh together well. Unlike with that other software system...you know the one. What are your thoughts?</p>
