"Over 100 years ago, an Englishman named Charles Darwin postulated that the survival of a species required continuous adaptation to changing circumstances. If that's true, then recent events at Apple make perfect sense--and give Apple a real chance to compete in a survival-of-the-fittest arena."
"According to the information on Apple's Open Source page, Apple opened its source code to obtain the benefits of "the most effective form of development for certain types of software. By pooling expertise with the Open Source development community, we expect to improve the quality, performance and feature set of our software.""
"In other words, Apple wanted to build a better beast. But evolution tells us that to be the best is not enough--one must also be adaptable. Darwin promises to have new possibilities as a cross-platform operating system (OS)."
