“Apple and Mac clone maker Psystar traded barbs last week in federal court as they simultaneously asked a judge to end the case that began more than 15 months ago,” Gregg Keizer reports for Computerworld.
“Florida-based Psystar took the unusual step of conceding to an injunction, saying that it would agree to stop using Mac OS X 10.5, aka Leopard, on the machines it sells,” Keizer reports.
“The two companies have been battling since July 2008, when Apple sued Psystar over the latter’s practice of installing Apple’s Mac OS X operating system on generic Intel-based computers,” Keizer reports.
“Psystar said it would agree to an injunction preventing it from using Mac OS X 10.5, aka Leopard. ‘Psystar will happily submit to an appropriately tailored injunction … limited to Psystar’s allegedly illegal activities involving OS X Leopard, since it is only OS X Leopard that this case concerns. Since neither Psystar nor Apple sells OS X Leopard any longer, it is no great burden for Psystar to agree to such an injunction,’ its lawyers said in the competing Psystar motion,” Keizer reports. “That concession, however, is meaningless, since as Psystar noted, it now sells Mac OS X 10.6, or Snow Leopard, with its computers.”

MacDailyNews Take: When all is said and done, the amount of bad karma amassed by these illiterate wiseasses at Psystar and their unprofessional amateur-hour “legal team” will be enough to blow a hole in Florida bigger than Okeechobee. Lake Psystar is bound to be filed with raw sewage, no doubt.
