Dear Mark,

" At the end of the day, unless you believe in anarchy (which you might, I
have no issue with that - particularly if you can explain to me how that
works in practice ;)), some observance of rules is required - and there is a
difference between discussing the rules (e.g. the meta level) which can be
most enlightening; and the discussing of how to break them (which often gets
quite boring in any specific case after a while - especially as plenty of
other people have discussed them at length and in detail elsewhere) ;)"

Mark, It works in practice, please read:

Off topic but to me of interest.

All the best,
Erik

Whilst that may be true - a significant part of LiveCode's business comes
from the US... As does our support for Apple devices.

Of course, Apple probably don't care (why would they? Hackintoshes are not
Macs). However, Apple did think it reasonable to outlaw anything other than
Obj-C and JS (through the WebView) apps on iOS for a while. So let's not
presume we can 'read' intent of such 'powerful' entities.

As I said there are other forums for discussing hackintosh creation - it is
definitely off topic for this forum; so beyond a few links of elsewhere to
look (which our helpful users have already supplied) I think this discussion
has probably done all it needs to, hasn't it?

At the end of the day, unless you believe in anarchy (which you might, I
have no issue with that - particularly if you can explain to me how that
works in practice ;)), some observance of rules is required - and there is a
difference between discussing the rules (e.g. the meta level) which can be
most enlightening; and the discussing of how to break them (which often gets
quite boring in any specific case after a while - especially as plenty of
other people have discussed them at length and in detail elsewhere) ;)

Caution is sometimes the greatest approach anyone can take, if you actually
want to effect change.

Warmest Regards,

Mark.
