Another company appears to want to enter the water but at least this time they won't be installing MacOS themselves.

You know, I thought Apple had some kind of strategy in place to deal with this issue when they moved to Intel, but it doesn't appear that they really do. It's all just patch and paste.

This will eventually lead to online registration and activation for OS X and no end of pain and aggravation for the rest of us, mark my words.

From Macworld:

"A company spokesman, who said he was a member of Open Tech's legal team, refused to give more than his first name, Tom. "I won't say more because of the ruthless sharks that are swimming around," he said when asked why he wouldn't provide his full name or title.

Open Tech Inc., which does not list its mailing address or telephone number on its Web site, will sell two different models..."

Quasi-anonymous representatives. No contact information on their website beyond a couple of e-mail addresses. A website that looks less than professional, to be *really* kind. And that same website makes no mention of "Mac" or "OS X", except in the "Feedback" section where are few outside comments are posted debating the legality of it all.

How could one not have confidence in a company like that?
