Apple "We all cheered when Apple began experimenting with community-driven, open source development for its flagship operating system. But if those experiments are now drawing to a close, should anyone really be surprised? In his columns earlier this year, InfoWorld's resident Mac aficionado Tom Yager noted how Apple seemed to be backpedaling away from open source. Seen through that lens, last week's news that the OpenDarwin Project would be closing its doors looks like just another sign of the times."

This combination (subject/header) somehow strikes me:

Without borders? Yeah, right...

I know that OSNews is not necessarily the "OpenSourceNews" portal, but... are you planning to do some more advertising for MS? If so, i'll have to enable adblock here again.

Isn't it the OperatingSystemNews portal? I really dislike the advert myself, encouraging charities to tie themselves up in MS technologies and licensing is evil, encouraging new developers to help them, doubly so, but that's probably not a valid reason why OSNews shouldn't run it the ad.
