Psystrar update: 10.5.3 / New OpenComputers
Psystar Open Computer (Open Mac) get its update too. Like many sites said before you won't be able to update your OpenComputer with Apple Software Update and have to wait till Psystar makes its own updater. Updating is easy, just have to download intsaller form Psystar`s web page and install it. How many customers does Psystar already has is unclear. People loving OS X will build their own systems or just buy a real mac. Recently Psystar started offering servers running Leopard, which i think is a little too much. Don't think that many companies will decide to move to a non-legit xserve just because of its price. Even OpenComputers miss some features real macs have, like FireWire boot, which makes easy to repair or to share your files with others. Despite of issues Psystar has, it was a really brave move to offer Apple clones, and it may sound weird now but might make Apple and customers more aware of the price tag apple has on their products.
You are probably looking for a working copy of Tiger or Leopard, ready to install on a "white box" pc. I can't give you a link to download it, so please don't even ask for it. This blog will inform you about working versions of OSX86. You have to find a copy yourself. (try some popular torrent sites)
