Legal Apple has responded to Psystar's new lawsuit today, stating that it is nothing but a stall tactic on Psystar's end. While I could just paraphrase whatever the filing reads, I decided to take this opportunity to address a number of sentiments and analogies often made in comment threads (not necessarily on OSNews).

You mean compete with their own software on someone else's hardware which takes away from their hardware sales? Why should they compete? Is OS X in a monopolistic position with 7% market penetration?

Are you kidding?

Apple creates a proprietary operating system for computers it manufactures. Why, exactly, is it under any obligation to compete against other manufacturers who want to sell their own systems running Apple's operating system?

Uh... because Apple sells shrinkwrapped OSX in places where I can buy software? They'd happily sell me a copy even though I don't own a Mac.

If they stopped selling boxed copies to people who didn't buy a Mac to begin with this whole case would go away.
