Former Mac cloner Psystar, after being sued by Apple, is reinventing itself as a Linux computer manufacturer.
"Florida's Psystar was slapped with an injunction by the US District Court for the Northern District of California that forbade the company from selling copies of either Mac OS X or any software that would enable said OS to run on non-Apple computers," explains The Register's Rik Myslewski.
"Psystar… indefinitely suspended sales of its only product, a $50 utility that lets customers install Apple's Snow Leopard operating system on generic Intel-based computers," writes Computerworld's Gregg Keizer. "The company also said it would resume selling systems 'in the coming days.' Those machines will run Linux rather than Mac OS X."
"Whether or not this will help Psystar in the future has yet to be seen," notes Neowin's Sam Symons. "The whole appeal of their products was the presence of OS X, which is generally only available on a higher-priced Mac, whereas any regular Joe can put together a Linux based computer provided they have the know-how."
