Mac Cloner Psystar Sells T-Shirts, Vows Comeback

You may not be able to buy Mac clones from Hackintosh-maker Psystar anymore , but if you’re looking to relive those glory days of running OS X on generic hardware, Psystar has a t-shirt for you. And it looks like they even designed it themselves, rather than modifying the fabric of some other company’s shirt so that it would work on their loom.

Earlier this month, Psystar discontinued the sale of all its computer systems. In the coming days, we will again be offering complete systems but at discounted prices as they will be bundled with your choice of Linux operating system. In addition to using only first quality components, our hardware specifically chosen such that it is known to be compatible with OS X (via Apples own drivers or open source offerings online). This makes it easier to get up and running with your favorite XNU based operating system, including Pure Darwin.

Psystar also plans to roll out versions of its Rebel EFI bootloader tailored for netbooks, and is offering T-shirt buyers a free copy of the software — if, that is, the company can convince a judge that Rebel EFI is legal and lets them sell it again.
