The two companies hackintosh Psystar Corporation and Efi-x trying to act like David against Goliath Apple, but it turns out that the unauthorized use of open source.
Apple to allow according to its end user license agreement that users do not install Mac OS X on other than its own computers. It has not prevented a great little scene emerging around this so-called Hackintosh-phenomenon.
Several companies have seen the potential benefits of this, and started operations in order to sell 'Mac on a regular PC "solutions. Two of the most famous is the Florida-based Psystar Corporation - which sells computers and, now, a USB dongle to install itself on a compatible operating system - and Art Studios Entertainment Media (ASEM) that sells usb dongeln Efi-x.
Both are accused now of developers behind the open source solutions that made this possible, which alleges that the companies are using code from these projects without talking about it, and that they also try to hide it.
According Netkas, which among other things, is behind much of the developments that made it possible to run the most graphics cards in OS X (even on a Mac Pro), addressed accusations against Psystar Corporation, saying that the company sponging on code from the boot-132 project and that by not putting all the code that is based on the project on the Internet violates its apsl license.
Efi-x-manufacturer ASEM is in the firing line of accusations from different quarters. Tom's Hardware has done a thorough review of the issue. It turns out that the company has endeavored greatly to hide the users what is actually sitting in the over 2 000 SEK expensive USB dongeln (cost: 70 SEK).
The company has also used the open source community, including from the project libusb-win32, and not published the source code or linking to the license (LGPL). In addition, it replaced all references to the real name of "Efix".
