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.

and suddenly Apple wins in the Courts over there.

I very much doubt that. The EU is VERY consumer friendly, and VERY pro free market.

If a consumer buys something, he is free to do anything he wants with it, as long as it is legal to do (you still must not stab someone into the heart with a legally bought knife).

The contract between a consumer and a store is entered into, when the installation medium is bought. As I do not sign the EULA at the store but later at installation, only those parts of the EULA are valid which give me MORE rights, not less.

It is different with business to business sales, but for consumers it is a really good situation in my country (Austria).
