Hardware, Embedded Systems Now this is interesting news that hit my inbox at 2:22 AM (don't ask). It seems like the concept of selling Mac clones is more lucrative than many have anticipated, as I've just been informed via email that the German PearC has expanded its business into the BeNeLux (Belgium, The Netherlands, Luxembourg) and France. Together with the news that Psystar emerged from chapter 11, it looks like the market for Mac clones is more lucrative than many of us had imagined.

A lot car vendor choose to sell spare parts alone. Does that mean you are eligible to get support and warrant in installing a VM spare parts to a Hondar car or some car you make by yourself?

Of course not. Why would you ask?

Do you think people who install OSX on uncertified hardware should be eligible for Apple support? I don't, and I never said otherwise.

It's a non-issue.

Because it is pointless to say Apple sell OS X alone while someone says Apple set hardware and software as a set. Selling OS X alone like selling spare parts and that's not the essence of the business model. If you mix any single channel you can get something with the essence of the business model in the reasoning, you will get no conclusion meaningful.

So as you said, they don't and don't expect support, and Apple set H/S as a set.
