Hardware, Embedded Systems As if selling non-Apple labelled computers with Mac OS X pre-installed and licensing the technology to do so to third parties wasn't enough, Psystar has now moved ahead and has started offering its Rebel EFI package for everyone to buy and use. It makes it possible for just about anyone to install Mac OS X on a non-Apple labelled computer.

For now, I see a company that wants to make money from the hard work of others.


Proof please?

Sorry I didn't make it clear...It's only my opinion, of course I can't prove anything without disassembling their program and compare with Boot-132, Chameleon, etc...

But, looking at their boot loader screenshot, it very, very similar to Boot-132, Chameleon.

People have been working in those free boot loaders since 2005. There is a big community working on it for free and to keep it free.

Of course there is work from Psystar on it, but the base of their software just looks very familiar.
