Apple We've had an immense hubbub about the delay in the source code release of Honeycomb, which led to a storm of critique being sent Google's way. Turns out there's another company withholding source code, and this time it's Apple. They have stopped releasing the LGPL source code for WebKit in iOS since iOS 4.3.0, released about 8 weeks ago. Turns out - this isn't the first time Apple has refused to release (L)GPL'd code. It took them six months to release the required GPL source code for iOS 4.1.

Yep.

There are still some people that think of good and bad corporations.

Microsoft, Apple, Google, Intel are on the game for the money. Their affiliation with opensource is only done when it brings them more money.

Or do you think any of the others would be better than Microsoft, if they got the chance to have the same market size?
