Where Is The Value?

I have been reading quite a bit about the “Apple Alternative” Psystar’s Open Computing, and their “Mac Clone”, and I am not really seeing the value here. What is the value in something that is essentially not going to exist in the near future, or as soon as apple’s lawyers get their hands on them, which I am surprised they haven’t done already.

I still cannot understand this hang-up that everyone has with a company such as Apple making a profit. Everyone has this altruistic view that corporations are no longer allowed to make a profit, but I don’t see people out there giving away any extra money that they may have after they pay their bills each month. Even Psystar charges $155 for leopard, that only costs them $129, there’s that evil profit thing again.

You know I probably wouldn’t have such an issue with this, if it was a re-engineered clone of OS X, but it is not.

So if you have an extra $700 or so, and want something that will be a minor footnote in the history of Apple, go for it.
