Apple Computer is breaking with its proprietary history and clambering aboard the Open Source bandwagon. The company is releasing source code for parts of the Mac OS X server under a new Public Source Licence, and the first code available is Darwin, the operating system based on Mac OS X Server?s foundation layers.
Components include the Mach 2.5 microkernel, the Apache Webserver and Unix 4.4. Also included are the NetInfo database, AppleTalk and the HFS-Plus file system, but Apple?s WebObjects application server and Mac file system are not being made available under Open Source.
