iPod a trojan horse for x86 OSX?
Kelly McNeill writes "Anyone wanting to get a multi OS PC from a major OEM these days is out of luck. It would appear that the illegal restrictions Microsoft imposed on PC manufacturers is still in full affect. But what about installing on external bundled hardware rather than on the PC itself (which is what Microsoft restricts.) Andy Bernhart submitted the following editorial to osViews which suggests that Apple could use the iPod and bundling agreements with PC OEMs to sell an x86 version of OSX without loosing revenue that would otherwise be made from Mac hardware sales."
