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.

How many times do we have to remind people that Apple is a hardware company? Of course, they're not interested in someone else selling competing hardware.


How many times do we have to remind people that Microsoft is a software company? Of course they're not interested in someone else selling competing software.

This is why they should not be obliged to allow anyone to install competing products on Windows, like different browsers, or OpenOffice.

Oh, sorry, for a moment I forgot. This is Apple, so of course the rules are different. Different matter altogether. Sorry about that.
