There's on guy I think I've reported 3 times in the last two days and still hasn't been banned.

He's trying to install Mac OS X illegally on a Dell Laptop and is trying to stream pirated movies into Real Player and still isn't gone!

Congrats again on the Gold pip.

He has unlimited long distance.
Can one presume that these phone calls were [funny] business related?

How you fit in all your posting, phonecalls, sleep & a real life in one day, is I something I can't understand.

The talk of OSx86 has been sanctioned everywhere just about. All it does is break the EULA, how the person installing it obtains his/her copy of OS X to put it on a PC is up to the person. If I went to buy a copy from an Apple Store, I could easily install it on my AMD desktop with a few tweaks.

I do not believe it is "illegal", just frowned upon. I've never personally heard anyone being sued over installing it on their personal computer. I have heard of companies selling computers with OS X installed (Hackintosh's) being sued, but thats a completely different story.

LOL, wait until you are an "adult" and have to work every day, you'll wish you were a kid

School is cool, that's where the girls (or boys) are

Nah, you have to live it to understand, go ahead and grump if you want

I have read the Apple EULA and the way it is phrased clearly states that you do not OWN the software you are merely LICENCED to use it on authorised Apple Machines.
This means you are breaking the Apple licence agreement as to how the software may be used which voids your licence, once your licence is void you are stealing. Last time I checked stealing was illegal.

Apple don't sue people who use they're products illegaly any more because it's not good for their image and have moved the enforcement onto people like me.

Since I joined this forum I have forced at least 3 people to remove Mac OS X from their illegal setups and all have complied or if not been banned.

Please read section 1 and 2a of http://images.apple.com/legal/sla/docs/macosx106.pdf to completely understand why it is illegal to install on non Apple Hardware taking into mind that a void licence still being used IS stealing.

Woah now. I wasn't commenting from a legal stance there. If anything illegal is going on its Apple disallowing the use of their Operating System on all computers rather then their own hardware as I believe that has a monopoly effect or something rather.

I doubt anyone would remove OS X just because someone asked. I have it installed on my desktop currently, aside from the lack of QE/CI (3d/2d acceleration) on the onboard graphics; it works great.

Not trying to start any fights here, but if someone comes asking for help.. I tend to help rather then shun away.
