In March of 1999 Steve Jobs made a new announcement, Apple was giving away some of its source code. Apple then introduced Darwin. He also stated that Darwin itself was going to be Open Source, this announcement immediately drew Open Source developers, including myself, out of the woodwork and immediately drew support from the Open Source community. This announcement also ended the FSF Boycott that the Free Software foundation had laid on Apple Computer. Darwin is based on the original NeXTStep implementation of Mach brought over from NeXT Computer. Darwin 1.0 was released shortly after the announcement and while it was primarily for Apple PowerPC based computers, preliminary support for Intel based machines was built into Darwin.
So in reality Apple actually open sourced most of the code from NeXTStep. The core of OS X is open source including Darwin and the code is released around the time when the system update is pushed to massess.Quote:
NeXTSTEP (also written NeXTstep, NeXTStep, and NEXTSTEP) was the object-oriented, multitasking operating system developed by NeXT Computer to run on its range of proprietary workstation computers, such as the NeXTcube. It was later ported to several other computer architectures.

But instead of reading my answer, you are pulling deaf line.
Well, in that case, please seek medical attention, clean that bullshit between your eyes and ears which you are refering to and maybe we can talk.
Because I can understand you pretty good, yet you fail to understand me. It must be something on your side, mate.
"No matter how much bullshit you spew it doesn't change any of these."
Oh, does this mean you are living in your own world where only things that you make up apply?
Well, you might also ask doctors for cure of schizophrenia. I'm sorry to hear that.
