Hardware, Embedded Systems In a very unsurprising move, Psystar is closing up shop. It will fire its eight employees, and be done with it. There isn't more to say, really, except this: one down, at least four to go, of which three in Europe. Good luck bullying those three, Apple. Update: Psystar's lawyers have stated that the original story wasn't true. Psystar will continue to litigate the legality of Rebel EFI through the motion process described by Judge Alsup. They will also continue the Florida case.

Psystar wouldn't have a chance, not now that most of the tech community regards them with pronounced mistrust.

I never saw anything ethically wrong with their MacOSX business; What Apple does is wrong, regardless of what the law says. If I distrust Psystar, it would be because of the Rebel EFI license/copyright issue.

However, if that were cleared up... Psystar, with 8 employees, is just about the right size to do OK in the preinstalled Linux market. Along with System 76, etc.
