Legal We've got some progress in the other legal case Apple is involved in. The California case, Apple vs. Psystar, is more or less a done deal, but the Florida case, Psystar vs. Apple, is only just beginning. As it promised it would do, Apple has now asked the court in California to either dismiss the Florida case, or transfer it to California. Apple is also asking for a permanent injuction against Psystar. Through this motion, we also gain some juicy insight into Psystar's sales projections - and more interestingly, how many machines the clone maker actually sold.

I think some of this discussion is invalid because Apple didn't know how many computers were sold until legal action was taken. Psystar made a very big noise that was basically begging Apple to come after them. Not to be an Apple apologist but I don't think they had much of a choice.

I doubt Apple minds people screwing around with hacking OS X on their own because most hackers understand that things won't work perfectly. Another company selling their OS on noisy, less than quality hardware reflects badly on Apple whether they're responsible or not. They really didn't have much choice but to take legal action.
