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.

Except that Apple sells OS X only for Apple customers that have bought Apple products. It was never intended for clone makers to buy and users installing it on a clone are breaking the EULA. I know, I know, big whoop right? Some people do obey laws I guess... And even if Apple gets the money for the OS X disc they are still possibly losing money on the sell of an actual Apple Mac.

At least here in France, it is illegal to sell two distinct products in a linked fashion. OSX and the Mac are distinct products, since OSX is sold separately from the Mac. So Apple can't force someone to buy a Mac along with OSX, if I'm not wrong. And in that case, this EULA clause is just invalid.
