BSD and Darwin derivatives Most of you will know that the underlying core set of components of Mac OS X and the iPhone operating system are released under the Apple Public Source License, an FSF-approved open source license. Few of you, however, will have actually used Darwin in any other form than Mac OS X or the iPhone OS. Despite numerous projects attempting so, Darwin has never gained any significant traction apart from Apple's own interest. The PureDarwin project tries to rise from the ashes of the OpenDarwin project, and has just released a Christmas developer preview.

I can see how what's on the site can be misunderstood. I guess we were operating under the assumption that people know and understand that Cocoa is an extension of OpenStep. We should probably clarify that.

BTW, sorry for the double posting before... for some reason the site wouldn't take the posting so I hit the button twice. ;)
