    Okay. Not sure if this is the right place for this, but what if apple released a version of OSX that was open source
    like OS Open
    They could release it to developers and surely beat out linux with this. Im sure people could mod it to run on PC's to.

    what do you guys think?

    basically, go and get a version of Linux. Make a sick skin to look like OS x then its open source. Apple would never release the source, they target such a small market anyway.
