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.

If I buy OSX and install it on my home-made PC, that is no problem for Apple.

If I help my neighbour install OSX on his home-made PC, that is no problem for Apple.

If someone thinks he can make a living out of helping people with OSX on his idea of better hardware, Apple has a problem.

With BSD as the fundament, (no Apple developement!) it sounds a bit like a wheaning kid, I do want that whaaaaa.

Time for Apple to become a grown-up compagny and sell OSX like a software-product and let the customer decide what to do with it.

They can keep on selling their own hardware with OSX, giving support an being "different" with their design's that were not altogether their own . . . .
