Hardware, Embedded Systems There's this hole here at OSNews, a hole left when Psystar was dealt a devastating blow by Apple's legal team. That whole saga provided a nice steady stream of news articles that's been dried up for a while. However, Psystar was not the only clone maker out there - what happened to Quo Computer, that clone maker with an actual real-world store front? They're still here, and just launched a new product.

Blessings of Heaven to them! I really mean it. I hope that these guys do well and can completely avoid any BS with Apple. If you ask me Apple should than Quo, after all is not Apple's saying "Think Different" Looks like Quo was thinking different, and being someone who delivers an awesome product. Competition is healthy, especially for the consumer.

And from a geek standpoint of view, I think that it's nice to see other computers clonesd, not just one type in many forms. ;)

Apple's slogan used to be "think different", back when they really meant it. Nowadays they want everyone to toe the line and do only as they say with their products, hardware and software.

That doesn't change the fact that I'll probably end up with a MacBook in the near future, but I also still have my trusty Hackintosh-able C2D desktop, itching for a fresh install of Leopard. I may even opt for a Dell Mini 10v for a more portable (and cheaper) OS X notebook.

I've always been more impressed by Apple's software than their hardware; though it's solidly built gear I prefer a more industrial/edgy half-finished feel. The smooth lifeless aluminum-and-glass look of their current line is kind of "blah".
