On legality and Leopard...

What about those who want to try Leopard and see if it will work on their hardware before buying it?

Yes, I know Apple wants me to buy a ridiculously overpriced machine but I don't do that.

I've always built my own PC's so why should I change if I feel like switching to a Mac OS?

However, unlike Windows, I can't be sure the Mac OS will run on my hardware so I'm testing it first.

Correct me if I'm wrong -but isn't it a violation of their license to use OS X on non-Mac hardware? If you were trying to be "legit" that would be one reason right there --you should change because Apple doesn't allow you to use their OS (which they get to dictate the terms that they allow it to be used under) on hardware that they don't sell.

 

Of course, for a great deal of people their license, desires and the "legitimacy" of their OS X install are completely irrelevant just as long as the OS runs.
