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.

Ah, that old scare tactic: "Now Apple must support every piece of hardware and every combination of them!!1!1!!1"

It does not. Apple has no obligation to support installing Mac OS X on non-Apple labelled machines - it just shouldn't use legally dubious tactics (EULA) to prevent it.
