Comment on "The OS X Kernel is Open Source"

SJC has it right.

Most of the Darwin stuff I end up poking at won't build (with darwinbuild or otherwise) due to private frameworks.

(An Apple person very recently told me to bug report these though, as usually it's just a case of someone forgetting to get something released...)

The real value for me as a sysadmin at least is simply being able to browse the code. It's awesome when you can lodge a radar and reference specific line numbers in Apple's released code when discussing a problem.
