Title: NS/OS Sources
Post by: jminiko on May 11, 2016, 10:00:45 pm
Hello all,
Would like to know if anyone has the source of NS/OS that will soon fall in Public Domain (I think it is 20 years).
Correct me if I am wrong.
Cheers and all the best.
Jim

We have tried many times to obtain limited sources from Apple to no avail.  We pulled on strings and internal contacts too.

Absolutely no luck...

It's amazing we have Darwin.  Although that is as close as it'll get.  It does have mentions of the aborted 88k port, along with the first PowerPC hardware in there along with the other 4... But all the system glue and stuff is long gone.

Look around here for Darwin 0.1 & 0.3 It's as good as it's going to get.  And it runs on x86 now  :lol:
