"Linux is mainstream. No, really. Everywhere I look, not
only are Linux and open source equated, but the masses of punditry
seem to be embracing it all with great fervor. This is a good
thing; it's just weird from my perspective because there's so much
more to open source software than Linux."
"The BSDs... run a distant second in the open source OS mind
share category. However, the one open source operating system that
hasn't gotten any coverage over the past week, despite having hit a
major milestone, is Darwin."
"The main problem that Darwin faces is that at a corporate
level, Apple treats it in the most opportunistic way possible. Any
time Steve Jobs wants to ride on the open source wave, he pulls out
his presentation slide that says "Linux-like," and that makes a big
impression. It did, anyway, as long as there was no Mac OS Public
Beta for the masses to swoon over."
