Mac OS X

Apple has always shared the kernel of macOS after each major release. This kernel also runs on iOS devices as both macOS and iOS are built on the same foundation. This year, Apple also shared the most recent version of the kernel on GitHub. And you can also find ARM versions of the kernel for the first time.

The code was pushed to Apple's open source site, as well as to their official GitHub mirror.

Companies like Google/Apple/Microsoft have millions of share holders, each with a limited amount of control on what the company does, and is under no obligation to keep the stock.

How do you hold individual stock owners responsible? Like if Apple did start killing every first born child with blond hair, would you arrest Joe Smoe? He didn't agree with that action the company had. His 1/millionth share didn't allow him to vote the proposal down even if it was up for a vote.

If you wanted to punish everyone according to their share, wouldn't you simply punish the company with a fine that way the stock would theoretically drop proportionally and dole out the punishment in a just manner. But then again, some shares have more voting rights than others. So those that voted for the terrible act should really be punished more, right? So how do you dole that out?

Stuff is complex man. Things aren't as the should be. But tell me how they should be, and I'll listen but Not expecting a random web comment to solve the worlds problems or even understand them.
