Psystar, shmystar!

MacRumors says… Psystar Demos ‘Open Computer’ on Video
What I want to know is, why does anyone care?

Since the moment Apple shipped Intel-based Mac, folks have figured out how to run OS X on homebrew PC’s. The only difference here is some folks are now selling those homebrew PC’s. Big freakin’ deal.

My prediction: They’ll sell a bunch of them opening day, then whisk into nonexistence with all due expedience. These barely specific PC clones will surely cause support and legal nightmares for the company, leaving their customers in a ditch. In a way it’s a nice business plan; they might make a few bucks before signing a settlement with Apple to close up shop.

News and rumors sites should stop covering this baloney, and simply wait to tell the inevitable footnote.
