BSD and Darwin derivatives The OpenDarwin project is shutting down. "Over the past few years, OpenDarwin has become a mere hosting facility for Mac OS X related projects. The original notions of developing the Mac OS X and Darwin sources has not panned out. Availability of sources, interaction with Apple representatives, difficulty building and tracking sources, and a lack of interest from the community have all contributed to this. Administering a system to host other people's projects is not what the remaining OpenDarwin contributors had signed up for and have been doing this thankless task far longer than they expected. It is time for OpenDarwin to go dark."

2005-07-06 was interesting there for awhile. :/ I don't like seeing projects that involved a lot of work having to shut down.

In response to "Apple Wins" by Cookie Monster... I don't understand what you are saying. I mean, I understand what you are saying, but I don't understand what that has to do with OpenDarwin shutting down?
