Since you're fond of bandying about the charge of "profiting from the work of others," would you be so kind as to provide us an example of a comparable company which has not done this, to validate your point.

Whatever gave you the notion that I am "fond of bandying about the charge of 'profiting from the work of others?'"

I merely state facts for clarification: Pystar profits from OSX, just as Apple has profited from the work of many others.

No one here has argued that Pystar doesn't profit from OSX, so validation of that point is unnecessary.

However, a few posts here by Apple fans dispute fact that Apple has profited enormously from the work of many others. So, I replied with plenty of examples and links in an earlier post to more than validate that fact.

Providing "an example of a comparable company which has not done this" is irrelevant, and additionally unnecessary since my point is already validated by the examples and links given.

By the way, there is a difference between Pystar profiting from OSX and Apple profiting from opensource code: Pystar pays for each copy of OSX...
