Legal Strike one for Apple. Curling is a better sport anyway - the first end goes to Apple. The Cupertino company sued clone maker PsyStar for licensing and trademark violations and copyright infringement, only to be greeted by a counter lawsuit from PsyStar, who claimed Apple was a monopolist. U.S. District Judge William Alsup sided with Apple on the counter lawsuit Tuesday. In his 16-page decision Tuesday, Alsup ruled Apple's products don't constitute a market to dominate. As a consequence, Apple then can't be considered a monopolist, Alsup wrote. An Apple spokesman had no comment. A representative for Psystar couldn't be reached for comment. The original lawsuit is still running, so PsyStar can, for now, continue selling its clones.

Apple don't either. They just won't let you sell their software on other hardware. You're free to install it on whatever you want, if you can.

Anyway, Apple use open stuff all over their stack. Not everywhere, much to our annoyance, but far more so than Microsoft. I can't understand your opinion at all.

Are you sure? What about that clause in the OSX EULA, allowing you to install OSX on Apple computers only? Maybe I'm just misunderstanding your post?
