Apple. Who else?
From the Captain Obvious and Duh Files, sources say (as if there weren’t enough of them) that Psystar has been sued so bad they’ll be owing money to Apple well into the next century (give or take a decade).
Steve Jobs himself has said that the reason people want a Mac is because of OS X. And he’s right. Granted, the box looks nice and all that jazz, but the utilization of the hardware inside (which is what counts) is from OS X itself. But you need a true-blue Mac to experience what OS X is all about.
I make it no secret that I’m not a Mac person. But if I were, I’d never buy a cloned Mac. Ever. The packaging, design and execution of Apple products can only be experienced when you specifically buy Apple products and not cheap knock-offs.
More or less everyone universally agrees that Psystar was asking to get sued into oblivion. Well, they got their wish.
