Top 10 Warranty-Voiding Hacks @neverbeenback: As was said down below in the comments, many warranties state that you can't change the OS to something 'not approved' which is generally a few versions of windows. Wether or not the company *actually* voids your warranty is up to them. edit: hackintoshing is vaguely illegal as well, so I can't see Dell being psyched to help fix your hackmac @freedomweasel: You miss the point, you would be expected to return the laptop to windows before return as using the restore discs is always the first thing to do to remove the chance of software problems, if they easily diagnose a problem then they often tell you to remove your HDD before return , so again YOUR WARRANTY IS NOT EFFECTED. Hackintosh is not illegal if you own an OSX disc, you are just breaking an EULA which means with proof Apple could sue you for it. @neverbeenback: jailbreaking an iphone voids the warranty. "your warranty is not effected" affected, not effected.

When you put the glider emblem on your web page, or wear it on clothing, or display it in some other way, you are visibly associating yourself with the hacker culture. Yes, as of a mere four days after this proposal was floated, there are mugs and T-shirts. If you think is about breaking into other peoples' computers, those of us the emblem was invented for do not want you displaying it. I used to have a prohibition against commercial use here. The glider is not copyrighted or trademarked. Here's what it will look like: Feel free to enlarge or shrink the image.
