Apple Opens up (kernel) and we see no Worm!

In its efforts to support open source community, Apple has, this week, opened up the kernel source for OS X Intel build. The release of OS X's kernel source marks a huge step forward for developers. The source for the PowerPC version of OS X has been available for some time now, but developers had been eager to for the Intel source when Apple announced its transition last year.
kernel source comes to you with a new portal, under the name, Mac OS Forge, which is dedicated to MAC Kernel developers. The Mac OS X kernel is open source software licensed under the Apple Public Source License 2.0. Complete license and copyright information can be found within the code.
