* Mac clone maker claims it bought OS X from Apple
* Psystar: No conspiracy against Apple
* Apple code crashes, locks up Mac clones, Psystar claims
* Apple adds DMCA charge to lawsuit against Psystar
* Apple wins antitrust fight with Psystar, judge tosses claims

February 8, 2009 (Computerworld) A federal judge last week ruled that Psystar Corp. can continue its countersuit against Apple Inc., giving the Mac clone maker a rare win in its seven-month-old battle with Apple.

He also hinted that if Psystar proves its allegations, others may then be free to sell computers with Mac OS X already installed.

In an order signed on Friday, U.S. District Court Judge William Alsup gave Psystar the go-ahead to amend its lawsuit against Apple. According to Alsup, Psystar may change that countersuit, which originally accused Apple of breaking antitrust laws, to instead ague that Apple has stretched copyright laws by tying the Mac operating system to its hardware.

Thanks for that link. Apparently I missed it in my daily review of tech news. This is good news. My biggest problem with the Mac is that Apple tries to lock it to their own hardware. I like the Mac OS, but I like building my own custom box even more. I see a hackintosh as a future project for me.
