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.

They could likely be ported rather easily, but to expect them to just work in OS X is unreasonable.

That's my point. I did not necessarily mean that OS X should be able to load a FreeBSD kernel module, or however they do it, but that drivers from FreeBSD should be pretty easy to adapt, and I highly doubt AAPL would be shy about it.
