So distribution through a torrent automatically == piracy? Just because
it's made available using distributed bandwidth does not automatically
mean it's an illegal copy. I think you will start to see more and more
legitimate distribution of "things" via technologies like torrent. It's
the best overall use of bandwidth. If you don't understand what I mean,
go read about torrent and why it's a good use of bandwidth before you go
labeling everything available as a torrent as illegal.

Why would you assume that? Do you really think they are going to supply
hardware to every developer that wants to start using it to port their
applications to? Developer release to me means it a very early release
not intended for non-technical-user consumption but is being made
available to (i.e. third party software) developers to start porting
software to. I don't know if it's a general release or not but I would
not automatically assume it's a limited release.

You must have some access to EULAs and so forth that I don't. Where are
you getting all of your "information" from?
Not that I really care about OSX on x86. Just trying to stop the spread
My other computer is your Microsoft Windows server.
