I've never understood why Apple hates devolpers.

It seems clear so far that they have no intention of allowing outside developers to add to the value of their product. yeah, I don't get it. If you want a really good product have a look at my other thread "10 Ways..." about the Nokia N800. It's far superior. Or, if you really want to future-proof yourself have a look at greenphone.

Totally opensource hardware/software...they're dying for nerds to hack it and make it do things you can only dream of. This is going to be a seriously impressive product when it's ready.

Hmmm....

Interesting points. I don't know about the specifics of any Darwin agreements, OS modifications, or the like, but I have heard something that may reflect this in some way. The thing I heard was that with OS 10.5, Apple will be dropping the "UNIX-Based" label for OS X. This is because they have managed to make OS X an actual UNIX system (By the way, I heard this from actual Apple guys).
What I'm wondering is if they managed to do this without modifying Darwin and making their own base to scale down to the iPhone. We'll see.
