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.

I just don't get this whole Apple deal. This is like saying I can only run Mobil gas in my car or saying I can only use Firestone tires. I know that's not legal. I am buying the OS not some phoney lease agreement that says I can't save money or make an choice. This is worse than the Government.

We all know Apple can't be selling their OS for $49 (or less) and making a profit. So they are actually loosing money on the OS so they can sell you a $2000 system. I know that's not legal.
