Hardware, Embedded Systems When Psystar announced it Rebel EFI package, the company was quickly accused of simply taking open source code, repackaging it, and selling it for USD 50. While selling open source code is not a problem, not making the source code available if the license demands it is. Netkas, famous OSX86 hacker, and a Russian site are now claiming they have found the smoking gun.

I think we have a lot of evidence that Psystar used stolen software from OSX86 community.


Yup, thanks to the translation above it's pretty much certain now. Bad Psystar, bad. They'll have to provide sources.

I'm currently installing Snow Leopard on my non-Apple labelled computer, and Rebel EFI does its job fine - I couldn't get the Snow Leopard installer to work using plain boot-132, so I'm happy. The installation is currently doing the actual installing, so it might still fail later on.

Of course, I'm not going to install Psystar's DUB - instead, once the installation is done, I'll install Chameleon, and not be bothered by time limits and registration issues.
