Mac OS X is build on MACH 3.0 and FreeBSD 5 MACH 3.0, requires both a 4.3BSD license (Apple has one because of they're A-UX project years ago) and a MACH license (from Cernegie Mellon Univercity -- which they have because they bought NextSTEP). http://www.cs.cmu.edu/afs/cs/project/mach/public/FAQ/license.info FreeBSD is BSD licensed and as a result completely free system. http://www.freebsd.org/copyright/freebsd-license.html As you can see there is no GPL encumbered code in the kernel/initial userland and therefore there is no "must give away" anything. Also the GPL is not a copyright it is a license.

Darwin is well Darwin, "Leopard" is a userland codebase that sits ontop of Darwin x.y.z For more details : http://www.opensource.apple.com and http://www.opensource.apple.com/apsl/ > If you start with a binary version > (http://www.opensource.apple.com/darwinsource/images/darwinx86-801.iso.gz) > please note that it comes from the apple site... > and download the last one, with some work (in reality a lot....) you will > end with a Leopard (TM) without apple marks... Please see above commentary,... you will not end up with "Leopard" you will land up with a Leopard-like Darwin. > I do not think this is ilegal, and I am not playing warez.

Why not just start with an OpenSolaris and update it???

None of this makes ANY sense,... I use many different Unices professionally and see no real stability differences with Flash (maybe I just set it up differently???) As for the virtualization VirtualBox and Xen are cross platform so I don't know where you're going there? Solaris Zones are cool, but essentially replacable with BSD jails of Linux virtual servers (not virtualized servers mind).

Sometimes those cages (which I dont like either) provide nice manuals/courses/user interfaces that less technical people prefer.
