Hardware, Embedded Systems As if selling non-Apple labelled computers with Mac OS X pre-installed and licensing the technology to do so to third parties wasn't enough, Psystar has now moved ahead and has started offering its Rebel EFI package for everyone to buy and use. It makes it possible for just about anyone to install Mac OS X on a non-Apple labelled computer.

Anyone else remember the heady days of the PowerPC clones from PowerComputing? I loved their ads -- even the last one showing the guy pulled over by the police for speeding -- a last slap at Apple for not renewing their cloning license.

Regardless ... I'm not sure what the legality of this is, but it sounds like a very cool way to install a purchased copy of OS X onto a number of different machines.

I hope they don't get squashed like a corporate bug for this. You have to admire their sheer chutzpah ;)
