It's the irresistible force meeting the immovable object.
With Psystar now confirming that it will support Snow Leopard on all new Mac clones, Apple's lawyers are on high alert.
Although Psystar says it has developed "new virtualization technologies" to allow its computers to interface with OS X like "never before," the company advised against installing Snow Leopard for now.
According to TG Daily, Psystar's technicians have a few more kinks to work out before a safe upgrade can be ensured.
"We ask you not attempt to install the new OS X as it may cause harm to your computer, resulting in a possible re-installation of Leopard OS 10.5 and a loss of data," Psystar wrote in an official blog post. "As with all previous software updates to the OS, Psystar meticulously tests and retests all software updates to confirm their compatibility with older Psystar machines. We will be releasing information on upgrading your Psystar computer to OS X Snow Leopard soon. The ability to do so may depend on when your system was purchased, and upgrade costs may vary."
As Psystar moves ahead with their controversial offering, Computerworld is out with a comprehensive story this morning on Apple's impending legal battle regarding the Mac clone maker's lawyer allegedly divulging sensitive secrets from Apple. Through it all, Apple is asking a California judge to order a 30 day "re-opening of discovery" in hopes of obtaining Psystar's knock-off Snow Leopard source code.
Psystar, meanwhile, has accused Apple of attempting to "draw a veil of secrecy" over ongoing litigation between the two parties.
