Apple The website of a Miami-based networking and security solutions reseller became inaccessible Monday, shortly after the company began advertising an unauthorized Mac clone for a fraction of the cost of Apple's cheapest system. Dubbed OpenMac, the USD 400 offering from Psystar Corporation is described as 'a low-cost high-performance computing platform' based on the ongoing OSX86Project - a hacker-based initiative aimed at maintaining a version of the Mac OS X operating system for everyday PCs. The website is back online now, and the machine has been renamed to Open Computer. Update: Psystar says they will continue to sell the Open Computer system, despite the fact that it appears to violate Apple's EULA. "We're not breaking any laws," they insisted.

MS has monopoly on windows software

Mac has monopoly on software+hardware

Linux has monopoly on nothing.because Mr .Linus can never think beyond his Kernel and thus have no idea what modern hardware is out there besides his compiler and keyboard..
It needs powerful compelling vision like of Bill Gates to make some working and affordable operating system for masses
