Unfair? no, it's just a license. You can state anything (legal) you want
in your license. You can say that you don't allow your software to be
used on computers that don't have an Intel CPU intalled, and that you
don't allow this to be installed on computers that *previously* had
linux installed or that have have a black case.

Up to you.

Of course, not all licenses are smart.
