    Yes, as mynameis stated, it would be in violation of the EULA. While technically it would work, it would be illegal to do so.

    If you or anybody else should happen to take your mac to Apple with an illegal copy of Tiger, they would probably void your warranty, if ya had one.

    Because it's wrong and immoral to do. It's theft. It's piracy.

    Whether you physically can do it is not the point. In the end, it's wrong.

    If you feel that way about it then why don't you delete it from your system and go back to the original "legal" os it came with instead of wanting to pirate the newest version coming out.

    Then don't buy it. No one is forcing you to.

    Glad to see many members taking the stance about "sharing" OS or SW - its piracy.

    Back before I got into engineering at Intel (1989) I did a lot of pirating of SW - heck even the Franklin I cobbled together was a rip-off of the Apple II. But once I saw the man hours that go into HW - SW - OS development - debug - testing - productization ... that switched it for me. All of this work is done by average Joe's just trying to earn a paycheck and hit the American Dream.

    Its not just wrong - its ripping off all of those people along the way
