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.

I don't see what is legally dubious about a EULA. If you don't like the EULA then buy something else that doesn't have one.

What's legally dubious about an EULA is the fact that they're restrictions placed on a product after the sale. If you signed the EULA before handing any money over and the product came without the software installed then it might be a different story, but as it stands EULAs aren't enforceable in most of the world, specially not on operating systems which come pre-installed.
