Apple So, how serious is the legal battle between Apple and the various Android phone makers, really? Surely, it's just logical business sense that's behind it, right? Calculated, well-planned precision strikes designed to hurt Android where simply making better, more innovative products isn't enough? Well, no, not really. We already knew Steve Jobs took this personal - now we know just how personal.

Don't forget: Apple based OS X on BSD (Darwin) and then stopped supporting the Darwin developers. Perfectly legal, BSD license and all, but right?

Darwin has always been open source. You can download the source of the latest version (From Mac OS X 10.7.2) from the Apple website.

That being said, we still have no ice cream sandwich sources in our hands, and we will never see honeycomb sources.
