Another Mac clone maker spotted on eBay
Psystar's exploits have been well-chronicled, but another Mac clone maker springs up on eBay offering a Leopard desktop not made by Apple.
Another entrepreneur is trying their hand at selling unsanctioned Mac OS X desktops.
AppleInsider spotted an eBay listing on Tuesday for a generic desktop tower running Mac OS X Leopard, weeks after Psystar made for Leopard with its Open Computer. "Chris555" is selling the unbranded desktop for a fixed price of $549.99, plus $50 shipping and handling.
Is this the latest in a wave of Mac clone makers emboldened by Psystar? Apple has remained silent on the issue to this point, butof enforcing its end-user licensing agreement against companies trying to make a profit on Mac OS X computers. The agreement says the operating system can only be installed on a single Apple-labeled computer.
Apple has left the OS X hacking community pretty much undisturbed, but it will be interesting to see how long it waits before taking action against commercial providers of its operating system.
