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."

Now contrast those two with a home built PC. Especially if it runs Linux or another OSS. That's *MY* computer. 110%.

The specs for all the chips you use are Open?

You may pay full price for that computer, but it's never really yours. It's apple's computer.

The great majority of people are entirely uninterested in the kind of ownership you are talking about.
