10.6: Snow Leopard DVD is full OS X install disc

"Yes my slow friend..."
Junkie, this is a good line if you're trying to piss someone off, but not such a good line if you're trying to make a reasonable argument. Which are you aiming to do?

Regardless, we are not discussing here what someone might (in all innocence) think or do if they happen to buy the dvd on a whim. We are discussing whether a thoughtful, informed person can ethically follow the instructions given in this hint. It's one thing if something installs the OS ignorantly, sure; but you can't reasonably use an 'ignorance' argument when we're talking about following instructions that start with the phrase "Despite Apple's suggestion on the Snow Leopard specs page...". At that point everybody *knows* it's not what Apple wants, and the only question left is whether one should do it anyway.
