Apple The website of a Miami-based networking and security solutions reseller became inaccessible Monday, shortly after the company began advertising an unauthorized Mac clone for a fraction of the cost of Apple's cheapest system. Dubbed OpenMac, the USD 400 offering from Psystar Corporation is described as 'a low-cost high-performance computing platform' based on the ongoing OSX86Project - a hacker-based initiative aimed at maintaining a version of the Mac OS X operating system for everyday PCs. The website is back online now, and the machine has been renamed to Open Computer. Update: Psystar says they will continue to sell the Open Computer system, despite the fact that it appears to violate Apple's EULA. "We're not breaking any laws," they insisted.

It's not a rant, it's a conversation. People keep talking out of their ass about what is good and what isn't...they have never even used these systems. That's the real point.

Save for the MAC (which I only toyed with but know quite a few people who love OSX), I've been using Vista since RTM and Linux since the Slackware 2.0 days. Constantly.
