BSD and Darwin derivatives "With the release of Mac OS X for x86 processors, Apple has chosen to not release source to key components of the OS, such as the kernel and all drivers. This means Darwin/x86 is dead in the water; Darwin/ppc has many closed source components and is a deprecated architecture." Read more here.

If Apple starts closing it's sources, I guess we have to say thanks to Maxxus for all the OSX/x86 cracking.

Why should Apple deliver the source code for somebody who just want to modify it in order to distribute illegal copies over the net? That would be pretty silly of Apple..
