Hardware, Embedded Systems Just when you thought you saw it all. So, we all know about Psystar, the two lawsuits between them and Apple, and all the other stuff that's been regurgitated about ten million times on OSNews alone. Well, that little company has taken its business to the next level - by announcing an OEM licensing program.

Competition laws say why other companies SHOULD be allowed to undercut you.


Anyway, this thing sounds me kind of cynical; I think I can compete with MY software developed by MY company using MY developers, etc...

Getting profit using someone else's investment is simply a shameless activity.

Apple are still getting profit from their development though.

Apple are still selling copies of OS X regardless of whether its installed on hardware inside a white plastic case with a black silhouette of an Apple, or Psystars own PCs.


This is the crux of the matter and why Psystar haven't already been shutdown: because Apple still selling their software to Psystar, thus Apple are still making money from Psystar - just not as much.

You can also make an argument that they're making more profit as a result.
