Keep in mind that there are many people out there that are not comfortable with putting their own box together. They would much rather buy a second hand HP or Dell and install SL on it. Also, consider that they would be able to get an HP or Dell warranty and service contract on the hardware. I do not think installing SL would void their hardware warranties. PC companies generally do not care what OS you put on their box as long as they get paid. It is almost like having your cake and eating it to. You get an inexpensive HP or Dell box and SL to boot.

It is, in my opinion, utterly pointless as os x has to be installed according to the components in the machine, whether it be homebuilt or storebought, not the "machine" itself. However for those who might find a use for it, here it is.

Who Says They have to know what OS you have installed :)

 

 

 

Install SL on a "Complete Desktop" is a Nightmare. Building a desktop and being able to pic specific components is the way to go.
