      AFAIK OS X will not run on x86. The rationale would be obvious; If you
      want OS X, you must buy apple hardware.

      I'd say that Microsoft has every right to expect a user to buy a license
      for each computer that the software will be installed on. And I tend to get
      especially annoyed by proponents of MS software who essentially bootleg a
      great deal of it; it's like a person who will only drive Porsches, but
      obtains them through theft.
