I had a thought the other day.....


Mac OSX now wants to make all their software come from apple's servers isn't that kind of like the idea of a repository? I know some people will bash apple and others see no problem with them. I am just wondering if they are borrowing said idea can we not at least force them to put the GPL license onto their app store? I personally would not be willing to go as far as to say sue for monetary compensation. And I thought I remembered reading in the GPL that anything using said software would need to show its source code. another bite into apples back which is honestly more of what I would rather like to see than anything else. I am no m$ fanboy no mac fanboy and no linux fanboy(well not 100% anyways.) i can see the best each has to offer for different groups of people and that is fine by me.
