Legal The legal case between Apple and Psystar has just taken another, very small turn. Psystar gained a small victory over Apple today, because U.S. District Court Judge William Alsup allowed Psystar to modify its counter-suit against Apple, after he had dismissed the original counter-suit. However, something more interesting came out of this ruling: the judge hinted at what would happen if Psystar were to win.

Even if a PC version of OSX costs more, I think people would buy it like crazy!!


Yup, I would. If nothing else, just so I could play around with it. They could just sell these babies at $100 a pop (or whatever) and say, "Unless you run it on Macs, we're not going to support it", and people like me would still buy it.

So they could essentially sell a shrink-wrapped copy for PC users and not even have to support it. Hell, what do they have to lose? It's not like I'm going to go out and buy Apple hardware just for the privilege of running it, so they're really losing money by not doing this.
