Another Mac Clone Rises

Apple's lawsuit against Mac clone maker Psystar has not discouraged others. It was recently announced that there is a new company named Open Tech will be producing Mac clones. However, their take is slightly different than that of Psystar. Instead of coming pre-loaded with Max OS, Open Tech will sell computers with Ubuntu Linux, but the system will be totally Mac OS compatible. That means customers can buy the computers and then install Mac OS themselves.

I checked out the Open Tech website and was not impressed. The products are not out yet and the website is obviously in its infancy. The site does not even have its own domain, but is hosted by freewebs.com. You can take a look at it if you want, but I would not buy.
