BSD and Darwin derivatives Possibly in fear that hackers will be able to find backdoors in the Intel Darwin version and allow OSX to run on PCs other than Macs, Apple has only posted the sources of Darwin for PPC for the latest version.

There are other versions that are older that work on the Intel. I was confused by the summary as well. So doesn't this in essence mean they changed the license for it? Can they even take the source code for one specific platform and change the license for it? I could understand if they just distribute the source, but no ISOs... bah, like it matters, someone will more than likely hack the full release anyhow to work on random hardware.
