Following Psystar's big loss to Apple over selling PC's with Mac OS installed on them, the company's website has gone dark. However, Psystar claims that it's going to stay in business and try to sell PCs with other operating systems and its $50 Rebel EFI software, which is what can apparently be used to allow individuals to install MacOS on their own. However, Apple still contends that even Rebel EFI is infringing. Again, this doesn't make much sense if you think about it. Why should a piece of software that lets you run another piece of legally purchased software be illegal?
