Wouldn't it only be illegal if one pirated a copy of OSX? If you buy a copy of OSX, can't you install it on whatever computer you want?

You're violating the terms of Apple's license. It's not legal to do it, even if you buy it. You can decide for yourself whether or not it's ethical.

Maybe there's something in the EULA that specifies the hardware that version is supposed to run on. Or maybe it violates the agreement with Lenovo to install OSx on it.

Then again, maybe he's just trying to warn the freshmen mac users that attempts to install OSx on their laptops unless they're in France is illegal.

More importantly, getting it to run on non-Apple hardware requires kernel hacks that violate Apple's licensing agreements and may be DMCA violations as well.

This post quickly turned into something far more complex than printers.

It seems to me that some of the people in this forum need to listen to the words of Bill Gates, Take this however you want.

Rule 1: Life is not fair - get used to it!

Rule 2: The world won't care about your self-esteem. The world will
expect you to accomplish something BEFORE you feel good about yourself.

Rule 3: You will NOT make $60,000 a year right out of high school. You
won't be a vice-president with a car phone until you earn both.

Rule 4: If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss.

Rule 5: Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your Grandparents
had a different word for burger flipping: they called it opportunity.

Rule 6: If you mess up, it's not your parents' fault, so don't whine
about your mistakes, learn from them.

Rule 7: Before you were born, your parents weren't as boring as they are
now. They got that way from paying your bills, cleaning your clothes and
listening to you talk about how cool you thought you were. So before you
save the rain forest from the parasites of your parent's generation, try
delousing the closet in your own room.

Rule 8: Your school may have done away with winners and losers, but life
HAS NOT. In some schools, they have abolished failing grades and they'll
give you as MANY TIMES as you want to get the right answer. This doesn't
bear the slightest resemblance to ANYTHING in real life.

Rule 9: Life is not divided into semesters. You don't get summers off
and very few employers are interested in helping you FIND YOURSELF. Do
that on your own time.

Rule 10: Television is NOT real life. In real life, people actually have
to leave the coffee shop and go to jobs.

Rule 11: Be nice to nerds. Chances are you'll end up working for one.

I find that college is mostly about opportunity. If Bill Gates found his opportunity before completeing college or found that there was nothing that college could do for him, then good for him. I came to college for the opportunities that it has given me, not for the education per se. Please note that by opportunities, I mean making contacts and expanding my skill set (which is an education of sorts), not to learn how to read and write. If an adequate opportunity should arise for me before I am done, I would have no problem "dropping out", if it led ultimately to success. Every person needs to weight the cost of decisions. Clearly Gates felt that the opportunity cost was too high to continue college, and that he would do better by founding Microsoft...and who are we to argue, he seems to have done quite nicely for himself.

So I have three points to add:

1) Don't overestimate how much a degree is worth.

2) If you can't read and write by the time you reach college, there is nothing it can do for you. (Rudimentary skills are for k-12, but that's a rant in itself.)

3) If you have a degree, but can't communicate clearly in a job interview, you've just wasted your money.

Andy, are you TRYING to come across as standoffish?

And John, the rules weren't actually written by Bill Gates, but instead by Charles Sykes. Not that some people don't need to learn them, though.

While I did not know prior to this comment that those rules where said by someone else, Bill Gates didn't recently give a speech to a graduating class of high schoolers, who would be the same age as the incoming freshmen, giving this list of rules to understand. The fact that it had been said by another person makes it no less useful. And the fact that a person drops out of college makes them no less intelligent or insightful. I personally dropped out of college and got a job (which now pays for me to go back to school for free) that is better then most of the jobs my high school classmates got when they finished college. An education is no more then what you do with it. which is one of the reasons we will force you to get a business class computer, in life you better cope with what is put in front of you or give up now.
