i don't really feel like buying a mac to test my software
i wish i know how to use torrents
sans torrents, still a no go?
there is a difference between buying a Mac for HARDWARE. And owning a license for OSX installed on a virtual PC environment.
i mean fuck, i want my shit to be able to run on a mac, i need to test it somehow
mac hardware aint cheap. Just buy an OSX license, and use a VM
Having OS X licensed to only Apple Hardware is the only reason they're still in business. Without it they'd be an iPod company.
shitty... looks like it's opensource for you
Contrary to popular belief, it's not a criminal offense to violate the terms of a civil contract. It does put you in a position to be sued for compensation, however.
actually, it *is* illegal to violate a civil contract. However, enforcement is through civil court, not through criminal court.
In any case, it should not be discussed here because it opens Fazle up for civil liability, which is the same for when you wish to discuss criminal matters here -- although criminal charges would be brought against the poster, civil liability is what is assumed by OT.
I know willful violation of a patent is a crime. I don't know about this though.
If it were to become available, I would gladly buy several OSX licenses for my PCs. I just have a hard time spending the premium on their hardware.
A patent is a legal declaration of property, much like a title of ownership is, and patent violation is the same as larceny. Violation of a contractual agreement, provided that it doesn't involve patent violation, is a civil offense only.
I'm not going to weigh in on the EULA discussion. You all know how I feel about EULA's. I will respond to the original topic, though:
OSX can be made to run on regular PC hardware (I have some friends who have done it), so it should be possible to make it run under VMWare. Search around on the internet, you should be able to find some information on what's needed in terms of drivers and stuff.
