Legal The week isn't even over yet, and we already have another instalment in the Apple-Psystar soap opera. Psystar has filed a new lawsuit in the Florida Southern District Court in Miami, asking for an injunction and damages because of Apple's "anticompetitive attempts to tie Mac OS X Snow Leopard to its Macintosh line of computers".

If Psystar want do so something of less questionable legality, they could probably try making something OS X compatible. Take Darwin, or an up to date BSD or Linux kernel and create their own userland tools compatible with OS X software - I'm not saying that would be easy, far from it in fact, but if it's not actually OS X, Apple can't really do anything about it can they?


Probably not. There's been similar things in the past such as Executor, which had some degree of MacOS compatibility.
