Apple Matters:

Interesting: not an approach I’d even contemplated as an option, but one which is quite possible. To get an idea of {Apple}’s opinion on this tactic I’ll wait to see if/when any OS X Intel 10.4.1 sharers receive letters from {Apple}’s lawyers and what sort of fines are mentioned.

I’m not convinced that this will help once the newer hardware and a later version of OS X arrives, as:

  1. who is going to hunt out hardware from a year or two or three ago to run this stuff ?
  2. are you going to snag a copy now and hold off until the new hardware appears before deciding about the OS ?
  3. would you really go to all this effort to run (for example) Windows 95 in order to see how well Windows XP suits your needs ?
