Hardware, Embedded Systems Earlier this month, Psystar suspended all sales of its hardware products, honouring the court's decision which favoured Apple. This week, Psystar has also temporarily halted sales of Rebel EFI while the former clone maker confirms the tool's legality with the court. Psystar also announced it will continue hardware sales in the coming days - with Linux rather than Mac OS X.

Why are they "thugs"? They are usually pretty pleasant about GPL violations, letting most go with out penalty after releasing the source. If only all thugs were so nice.

Why is it such a problem to ask one thing? Share your source code.

How about the long list of things Apple try and stop you doing or limit your capacity with their devices and software?

Yeah, I don't understand these people myself. Everybody must abide by proprietary licenses and it's no big deal, but they got all offended when they have to abide by the GPL.

They moan about a supposed sense of entitlement, yet they feel entitled to take code that wasn't created by them and do the only thing they're forbidden to do; close it.
