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.

Your rant, made short :

Linux sucks. It's free, and it works, but it runs the same boring application base as any other system.

Mac sucks. Nothing free on the Mac, plus it has less apps than Windows. Apple doesn't mind with X11 not working correctly, which is a pain to run the boring application base. Plus they want developpers to ditch Carbon and use Cocoa, broking application compatibility. Microsoft has abandoned the Mac. And there is this one button mouse thing (frankly, I didn't expect that one, it's so "passé").

Vista, at least, doesn't suck. Everything is better on my Vista box. Yeah, there is some application compatibility broken, but look at the Mac, it's worse.


Your rant, made even shorter :

Everything sucks, save Vista.
