As a follow up http://www.macosrumors.com says that the source will be for
Navigator 5. The question that I have is will they release the source with
rights to use, or not? As an example I can get the source for Quake, but I
can't implement any of the technologies in a game.
Also being reported is a settlement on the Ms/DOJ issue. Shit, just when
Bill needed him the most...
