PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless It might be a cliche, but sometimes, a picture says more than a thousand words. Over the years, I've often talked about how the technology world is iterative, about how products are virtually always built upon that which came before, about how almost always, multiple people independently arrive at the same products since they work within the same constraints of the current state of technology. This elementary aspect of the technology world, which some would rather forget, has been illustrated very, very well in one of Samsung's legal filings against Apple.

So you have some fanboys voting for your ignorance, bully for you.
Apple take the BSD kernel, make minor contributions to make their stuff work and everything useful is closed source. You can't run OS X apps on Darwin, no-one uses it and in fact OpenDarwin closed years ago; citing that it "become a mere hosting facility for Mac OS X related projects,"

I'm guilty of hyperbole but their contribution to the hand that feeds them is microscopic, you're acting like a shill.
