    Apple nukes Psystar

    The Apple vs Psystar case has ended rather predictably, with Apple basically nuking the Mac clone maker out of existence.

    Florida-based Psystar rose to fame back in February of 2008 when it started to market Mac close systems - basically PCs modified and configured to run the Mac OS. In July of that year Apple threw a spanner into Psystar’s plans by filing a lawsuit against the company. That case has been progressing through the legal system ever since.

    However, on Friday Judge William Alsup dealt what seems to be a fatal blow for Psystar by granting Apple’s motion for summary judgment while denying Psystar’s counterclaims.

    Basically Alsup ruled that the Mac OS End User License Agreement (EULA) is both legal and valid and ruled that installation of the OS on non-Apple hardware is not allowable. Period.

      Its not as if this result was ever in doubt, from what I read of it Psystar's case was shakey as a shakey thing with the jitters.
