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.

But if you think its alright to ignore it, and if Psystar for some strange reason wins, all License Agreements presented in the same manner go right out the window, including the GPL.


Except that the GPL is not and end-user license. It's a distribution license. The terms of the GPL only come into play when you distribute the source/app/binary/project/etc to someone.

Same thing with Apple and MacOSX you are not buying the copy of OSX, you are buying a license to use OSX.


Several US courts seem to disagree, in that you do buy that specific copy of software.
