StikyPad was one of several readers letting us know that Psystar has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection
. We've discussed the Mac clone
maker's battles with Apple
extensively. The company apparently has over $250,000US in debt, and states that it cannot turn a profit in the current economy. "The Chapter 11 filing will temporarily suspend Apple's copyright infringement suit against Psystar, which is currently before the US District Court of Northern California. But once the bankruptcy protection is sorted out, the copyright case will resume."
And PC Mag is reporting that, on the other side of the Atlantic, two new clone companies are just getting started
. Like PsyStar, FreedomPC and RussianMac promise to deliver PCs with OS X preloaded.
