I knew it ... MAC heads are all

Where are the Mac clones ?

Psystar Corp., a maker of computers that are capable of running Apple Inc.'s Macintosh operating system, filed for bankruptcy protection less than a year after being sued by Apple for copyright infringement.

Closely held Psystar blamed its bankruptcy filing on the downturn in consumer spending amid the world-wide financial crisis. A representative for Psystar couldn't immediately be reached for comment.

Apple sued Psystar just three months after the company began selling its "Open Computer" with Max OS X in late April 2008. Apple claims that Psystar is in violation of the software license agreement protecting Apple's Leopard operating system, and notes that Psystar's product was even originally called the "OpenMac."

Psystar has denied that it produces computers that run a "modified, unauthorized version of the Leopard operating system," and said it only called the product OpenMac for a few hours.

Basically almost any PC can run Mac OS.

There are probably more Hackintoshes out there now than "real" Macs.

But overall it is an attempt to be a monopoly.
