Apple [finally] sues Psystar

In the “about time” category, Apple has filed a lawsuit against Mac-clone maker Psystar for license violations and copyright infringement.

Psystar, as you’ve probably heard by now, was selling PC’s that were made from components so similar to the one’s Apple uses for their Mac’s that they were able to install Mac OS X onto them, giving you a way to get your hands on a “Mac” for a lot less than you’d pay for a Mac.

Some people in the OSX86 community weren’t so happy with Psystar for trying to monetize the process of getting OS X onto a PC and it looks like they may have the last laugh. I really can’t see Apple losing this–the license agreement for OS X says that the operating system cannot be ran on non-Apple hardware.
