Hardware, Embedded Systems Just when you thought you saw it all. So, we all know about Psystar, the two lawsuits between them and Apple, and all the other stuff that's been regurgitated about ten million times on OSNews alone. Well, that little company has taken its business to the next level - by announcing an OEM licensing program.

i guess we all want pretty APIs and a stable os on cheap hardware.


Pick two, but you can't have all three. That is the reality of the OS world. Oh how I wish that a large OEM would embrace *BSD, create a complete software stack and sell it with their own hardware - but it won't happen. The current bloated management in Dell and HP would sooner keep the status quo than do anything adventurous.

Yes, I am the last remaining person who believe sin the vertically integrated model - even with every idiotic half-wit analyst from the 'financial market' claiming that the horizontal model is superior. The day when a use Windows without recoiling away from it with disgust is the when I can see merit in the horizontal model.
