I'm not much of a Mac fan. This is simply because I don't have a need to use Mac's. I have friends who use and love the Mac book pro and I've seen a few being used on the train when I travel into and back home from work. I'm still not a fan though so never looked into Mac OS until a few days ago when I was testing out a new security tool for some due dilligence work that was required and a copy of Mac OS would have been very useful for testing.
Could I just go to Apple's site and download a trial? Nope. Not allowed. It seems insane to me that Apple have no ability to allow the regular intel user the ability to try out Mac OS without having to buy the hardware. This policy must be causing Mac sales.
