Hardware, Embedded Systems When Psystar announced it Rebel EFI package, the company was quickly accused of simply taking open source code, repackaging it, and selling it for USD 50. While selling open source code is not a problem, not making the source code available if the license demands it is. Netkas, famous OSX86 hacker, and a Russian site are now claiming they have found the smoking gun.

"a lot of outrage amongst them"

There is? I haven't read a paper today, maybe it is on the front page of USA Today?

"APPLE FANBOIS RANT AND RIOT OVER EVIL PSYSTAR"


They rant about everything (remotely pertaining to Apple), including when Apple doesn't make the machines exactly the way they want.

You did know that Apple are the saviours of humanity, didn't you? As a benevolent society, they are trusted not only with our data (see guest accounts on Snow Leopard) but with our first-born children. Then again, I've heard similar rumblings about Linus Torvalds, FSF/Richard Stallman, and Bill Gates.
