    seriously man, in todays times how can you think companies wouldnt put some sort of serial key for an operating system like osx?

    like other os'es, the disc isnt any good without the serial

    Because your Mac is the serial #. That's why it takes some jumping through hoops to install it on Hackintosh's. Each genuine Mac has a serial # that the install disc verifies before installing. It's also how they lock you out from installing the OS on a Mac that can't handle the requirements. Unlike Windows which will install on anything it can find a HD on.

    if you don't have the serial, it'll ask you 3 questions.

    Failing one question makes your mac asplode.

    I'm not condoning piracy, but given how much Apple charges for its hardware, I'd say they're still getting more than their money's worth. In fact, I think it's kind of ridiculous to charge so much money for what is essentially a cosmetic makeover with a few tweaks.

    It doesn't bother me when people choose to pirate Apple's software.
