But if those experiments are now drawing to a close, should anyone really be surprised? In his columns earlier this year, InfoWorld's resident Mac aficionado Tom Yager noted how Apple seemed to be backpedaling away from open source. Seen through that lens, last week's news that the OpenDarwin Project would be closing its doors looks like just another sign of the times."

If they had no desire to release the sources, they wouldn't have chosen an LGPL project in the first place.
