Apple is 90% open source jailed inside 10% proprietary , when there not using Free software.

Safari was not made by Apple. It's there rebranding and derivative of khtml.

iTune was ported to windows only and this in a deal with HP , Dell , and others to push the iPod's , they would not take them if they did not made the iTune available.

Quicktime is also not from Apple. It was made available to windows to push adoption of the quicktime format by camera makers.

TrueType is a font , not software.

CUPS was not made by Apple either and is a UNIX printing protocol under the GPL.

How many of those Apple derivative run on BSD ? How Many on GNU/Linux ? How many on BEos ? How many on OS/2 ? How many on OpenSolaris ? etc ...
