Hardware, Embedded Systems There's this hole here at OSNews, a hole left when Psystar was dealt a devastating blow by Apple's legal team. That whole saga provided a nice steady stream of news articles that's been dried up for a while. However, Psystar was not the only clone maker out there - what happened to Quo Computer, that clone maker with an actual real-world store front? They're still here, and just launched a new product.

"... nobody is pirating anything nor doing anything that is wrong..."

Well, they are technically breaking the EULA for a profit. So it is an "iffy" proposition at best.

The main problem IMHO is that these sort of vendors have little value proposition, the prices/configs in their website aren't that exciting ($1K for a configuration with an ATI 3000 series GFX?). So the hardcore geeks seeking a hackintosh can probably get a better deal in the HW elsewhere, and since they can't provide that much support for the OS... neophyte customers will probably go directly to apple.

Alas, best of luck I guess...
