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.

Ask DELL or HP which OS they'd rather pre-install on their PCs. OSX of course.
Why don't they? BECAUSE APPLE REFUSES TO SELL THEM LICENSES

Apple refuses to sell them bulk wholesale licensing. But legally (IMO) there's nothing stopping Dell or HP from buying OSX at full retail just like Pystar.

Why don't Psystar and Pear PC sell their PCs with Windows or Linux pre-installed?

Not sure about Pear C, but Pystar does sell computers will Windows and Linux installed. Choose the computer model, choose the OS, and Pystar builds to your specs. From a consumer's standpoint, what could be better?

Here I did it again - confusing or mis-typing PearPC and Pear C. Now there's a cause for a copyright lawsuit...
