Comment US issue? (Score 1) 582

I'm working at a university in Sweden. This kind of behaviour would be totally unacceptable here (afaik).
Sure, the wired net with static IP's has a MAC filter but anyone is welcome to use the guest wlan which works ok as long as you don't need to access file shares behind our firewalls.

*All* MacBooks and MBP's older than 3 yrs belonging to people in my immediate surroundings have problems with hanging/freezing and/or screen glitches.
2 years ago one of my closest friends had to return his brand new 17" MBP *four times* due to broken hardware.
Apple != quality.

I'm not saying others are better, just that the hype surrounding Apple hardware is bollocks.

Well, "Mac OS X guest on a Mac from a Windows or Linux host" implies running another OS on Mac/Apple hardware, does it not?

I'd love to run OS X as guest OS on my dev machine (not Apple) to test web pages on OS X Safari instead of powering up the old MacBook.
Yes, it's webkit and I can use Chrome but still some form elements render differently.
