BSD and Darwin derivatives The OpenDarwin project is shutting down. "Over the past few years, OpenDarwin has become a mere hosting facility for Mac OS X related projects. The original notions of developing the Mac OS X and Darwin sources has not panned out. Availability of sources, interaction with Apple representatives, difficulty building and tracking sources, and a lack of interest from the community have all contributed to this. Administering a system to host other people's projects is not what the remaining OpenDarwin contributors had signed up for and have been doing this thankless task far longer than they expected. It is time for OpenDarwin to go dark."

QUOTING:"Look at how they've fought against the guys at the osX86(or whatever that website is called, it slips my mind at the moment) project."

What would you expect?? To allow a copyrighted operating system to be freely hacked and distributed?? What does this have to do with OpenDarwin or opensource projects anyway??
