Hardware, Embedded Systems Now this is interesting news that hit my inbox at 2:22 AM (don't ask). It seems like the concept of selling Mac clones is more lucrative than many have anticipated, as I've just been informed via email that the German PearC has expanded its business into the BeNeLux (Belgium, The Netherlands, Luxembourg) and France. Together with the news that Psystar emerged from chapter 11, it looks like the market for Mac clones is more lucrative than many of us had imagined.

Problem is: with Apple having to write the drivers for hardware (to keep quality) it does cost more to develop in that regard... compared to Windows which Microsoft decided to rely upon hardware OEMs.

So if you install on your hackintosh and you have a sub-par experience, are you going to say "oh well, maybe it's my machine?"

Apple _chooses_ to sell the hardware & software as a set. You're perfectly free to choose to use Linux, Windows, or one of the BSDs.
