OS X hackers have found a cute little poem inside the Apple kernel. It's a warning would-be plunderers to leave the OS be. The poem, which appears in locations that could potentially be edited in order to slam OS X onto commodity Intel hardware, implores hAXorZ to stay away.

The embedded 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./(C) Apple Computer, Inc."
