A dozen years ago, someone popped up with the brilliant idea of trying to sell a computer that comes pre-installed with the macOS. The thought behind Psystar and its Mac clones was that Apple’s system are too highly priced, and the upstart thought it could attract those wanting the Mac experience without having the budget to spend on Apple’s own products. There was just one tiny problem that thinking: Apple’s end-user licensing agreement forbids the macOS from being installed on non-Apple hardware.
The result, predictably, was lawsuits and Apple eventually being able to shut down Psystar.With the legality of Apple’s license validated, it seemed like attempting to follow Psystar’s lead would be a lost cause, especially since Apple’s Boot Camp utility has allowed users to install Windows on Mac systems for well over a decade. But a new challenger has seemingly appeared out of nowhere
