Don't steal Mac OS X

According to The Mac Observer and MacDailyNews,

Apple has hidden a poem inside OS X that warns users not to pirate the operating system, according to OSx86 Project. The Web site noted on Tuesday: "a few pieces of OS X look for a secret message in 'commpage' that gets decrypted via the TPM... basically a decoder ring for geeks. " The poem reads:

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.

Guys, don't steal Mac OS X
