  • Also confirmed: Installing Snow Leopard upgrade disc on Tiger is illegal

    The language of the EULA is pretty clear (h/t Joe Kissell):
    "If you have purchased an Upgrade for Mac OS X Leopard license, then subject to the terms and conditions of this License, you are granted a limited non-exclusive license to install, use and run one (1) copy of the Apple Software on a single Apple- branded computer as long as that computer has a properly licensed copy of Mac OS X Leopard already installed on it."
    Anyway, they do throw everything but the kitchen sink on there for $149.99:
    • Mac OS X 10.6
    • iPhoto '09
    • iMovie '09
    • GarageBand '09
    • iWeb '09
    • iDVD
    • Pages '09
    • Numbers '09
    • Keynote '09

    Use your judgment...

      Honestly what gives Apple the right to call something illegal? Legality implies that there is a law in place. Governments make laws, not Apple. Last I checked Apple was in the IT industry, not running the country. This BS is just propaganda to scare the people with no backbone at all.

      They grant licenses to their software and that can be conditional

      I also heard that it's illegal if you update straight from windows 3.1

      I'm looking for some help...

      I downloaded a file copy of Snow Leopard but when I open the .dmg file and click on "Install Mac OS X" it tells me to open Disk Utility and burn the disk image. When I open Disk Utility, the DVD-R I put in doesn't have enough space for the whole file.... any suggestions?

      Thanks in advance!
