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.

If I have purchased a copy of OSX then I am obviously an Apple customer who has purchased an Apple product.

Sorry not what I meant. I meant that it is intended to be sold to Apple Mac Hardware customers. People that bought an Apple Mac, not a clone.



What law? A EULA is not law. Apple does not make laws, they sell products. Whatever the consumer do with the products after they're purchased is none of Apple's business. Apple can not dictate what a consumer do with their produts after purchase. In fact, if there's any law to be broken here it is broken by Apple trying to dictate post-sale restrictions.


Again, my poor choice of words. Contract is the right word.

I really don't understand all the Anti-Apple people. If someone makes a computer and an OS specifically for that computer, why should they not be able to protect said OS from being essentially stolen by competitors to run on unofficial hardware. Even if they are paying retail they are still not being ethical at the least. Apple is a computer/Hardware company after all.
