Legal The legal case between Apple and Psystar has just taken another, very small turn. Psystar gained a small victory over Apple today, because U.S. District Court Judge William Alsup allowed Psystar to modify its counter-suit against Apple, after he had dismissed the original counter-suit. However, something more interesting came out of this ruling: the judge hinted at what would happen if Psystar were to win.

what they would no longer be able to do would be limiting the install on apple only hardware.

drm on the hardware would be fairly difficult (i mean difficult in finding a way that isnt hackable inside 5 mins) I think it would annoy more than it stopped

What would be interesting is if they made Apple OSX upgrade only and available only to those with a valid key (ie a key only comes with an apple mac)

OEMs could be offered 'Peach OSX' a rebranded version of osx which is limited feature set (no expose etc etc)and having only community support thereby retaining brand prominence and value.

p.s. i know i went off on a tangent but the more i think about it the more the idea intrigues me
