Apple Seeks (Poetic) Justice

Seems Apple has hidden a secret message to OSX86 hackers to find in the 10.4.4 build of Mac OS X for Intel. And this time it's in verse!

Your karma check for today:
There once was a user that whined
his existing OS was so blind,
he'd do better to pirate
an OS that ran great
but found his hardware declined.
Please don't steal Mac OS!
Really, that's way uncool.
(C) Apple Computer, Inc.


Sure, it's not the greatest poem, but how funny is this! I've always loved easter eggs in software and this is the best kind. The people who run OSX86 Project site have offered up their own poetic reply to Apple. You can read it at their site.

I humbly offer up my own poetic reply in the style of William Carlos Williams after the jump...

This Is Just to Say

I have beaten
the DRM
that was in
the Intel box

and which
you were probably
saving
for Leopard.

Forgive me
it was auspicious
so sweet
and so fast.
