Psystar Exits Chapter 11, Continues Producing Apple Clones

It appears that Psystar, the notorious manufacturer of Mac clones, is poised to make a comeback after filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. The company has announced plans to resume operations and continue its David vs.

Goliath battle with a fresh hardware product on the horizon.

In a recent e-mail newsletter sent to its subscribers, Psystar revealed that the bankruptcy protection was essential for maintaining their operations. They expressed readiness to re-enter the market following an official discharge from the bankruptcy court expected soon.

The newsletter also unveiled Psystar’s latest product, the Open(7), which integrates OS X with Intel Nehalem Xeon technology, claiming it to be their most powerful and silent system yet.

Furthermore, they announced that all new machines will incorporate a newly developed bootloader, the Darwin Universal Boot Loader (DUBL), with hints at an upcoming open-source release.

The communication concluded with a thought-provoking remark: “When life gives you apples, make applesauce.” This statement leaves one wondering whether they are alluding to the fruit or perhaps, metaphorically, to Apple Inc.
