PsyStar, a Miami company, garnered quite a bit of press when they announced a cheap Intel-based desktop computer that you could use as an Apple clone running Mac OS X, in a pretty clear violation of Apple's legal restrictions on use of the operating system. So everyone was waiting for the hammer to drop — which it finally did yesterday, in the form of a complaint filed by Apple with the U.S. District Court in San Francisco.

Accessing PsyStar's website has become problematic, though it's not clear if it's due to court inunction or just the amount of public interest the company has generated. You have to give PsyStar credit for their moxie, though — running Windows, Linux or OS X on the same, relatively inexpensive and modifiable box as demonstrated in a promotional clip from PsyStar is the stuff übergeek dreams are made of.
