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.

Ask DELL or HP which OS they'd rather pre-install on their PCs. OSX of course.
Why don't they? BECAUSE APPLE REFUSES TO SELL THEM LICENSES


It is very likely that Dell and HP are only willing to pay $15-25 per licence. They wouldn't even consider paying full retail prices. That is why Apple won't sell OSX to them.

They've never been offered and never will.

Steve Jobs will be dead or out of Apple in the near future. Then a lot will change.
