CMP Net: Apple Defends Open Source Initiative

“Apple Computer has gotten a rough reception to the world of
open source.”

“Less than a week after Apple released portions of its new Mac
OS X Server as open source, the company was rebuffed by three
leading open source figures with multiple concerns about Apple’s
code release and licensing plans.”

“I guess we are finding out that there are many open source
spokesmen, but Eric owns the Open Source Initiative trademark,”
Tevanian said. “We think the license is aggressive and a bold move
on our part. There seem to be several factions in the open source
community, and while we may not be pleasing them all we think we
are being good open source citizens.”
