Apple reserves the right to prohibit third party software from running
on their machines.  i.e. if your software product competes with an Apple
product or conflicts with their business interests they reserve the
right to deny you the means to sell it.  Thats goes a lot further then
Microsoft.  This is a worry because they are designed to displace
desktop computing.
