Psystar, Still at It, Claims Software Runs Snow Leopard on Generic Computer

Lora Bentley

And here I thought net neutrality was today's only story that will not die. I shouldn't be so quick to assume things.


Psystar, our favorite Mac clone maker, is back at it. Never mind bankruptcy, never mind a lawsuit brought against it by Apple. The Florida-based company is selling software that will run Mac OS X Snow Leopard on generic hardware.


According to

The company's latest invention is Rebel EFI, a product sold exclusively through Psystar's company store for the "special price" of $50. It claims to offer the ability to run up to six operating systems (including Mac OS X Snow Leopard) on six different hard drives on the same computer.

Why this company's founders don't just let go and move on is beyond me. It can't be good when potential customers click through to their site and find the following disclaimer for the free download of a trial version:

Rebel EFI is free to try and download, though it will have limited hardware functionality and a run-time of two hours.*Psystar is not responsible for possible data loss due to installation or use of Rebel EFI. (bold in original)


Like writer Nicholas Bonsack, all I can say is proceed at your own risk.
