Legal Apple has responded to Psystar's new lawsuit today, stating that it is nothing but a stall tactic on Psystar's end. While I could just paraphrase whatever the filing reads, I decided to take this opportunity to address a number of sentiments and analogies often made in comment threads (not necessarily on OSNews).

Apple could simply ignore the polluted waters and continue to sail the ship, but it's nicer to do so without everyone commenting on the sh*t sticking to the hull (never mind the smell).
Apple could turn a blind eye to others selling Mac OS X for regular PC's. However... the many incompatibilities and bugs introduced by mismatched drivers and obscure hardware would reflect negatively on the relatively "it just works" experience that the Mac OS currently enjoys.
On the other hand... Apple itself could easily start selling Mac OS X for regular PC's instantly making itself the largest OS vendor in the world, outperforming Microsoft but making itself the most loathed also for selling out and just for being number 1. Ask Bill.
