How is Apple able to sell OS X for a profit when it's based off Linux which is open source/free?

Isn't that illegal?

Why are you making the same thread every day?

It's because the BSD cucks love having their code stolen by corporations.
>>
>>52267576

Steve Jabs made a deal with Richard M Staleman (the creator of open source) to allow it.

>>52267576
Apple doesn't sell OS X
>>
>>52267696
They do just like windows

>>52267806
They don't. Upgrading is free at any time and it comes free with every mac.

Microsoft is a software company and gives out Windows 10 upgrades for one year for free because it has spyware to sell your data anyways.
>>
>>52267981
Every upgrade has been $99

>>52267576
BSD actually, and they made their own, competent compositor. Something Linux has never managed to do.

>based off Linux
It's based off BSD, not Linux. They're different things.

Stop being a fucking retard.
>>
>>52267995
this changed about 4 versions ago, with mountain lion i believe. since then every upgrade has been free.
>>
>>52268014
>competent compositor.
Is that why they're tied for marketshare on desktop, and forced apple to surrender and entirely pull out of the server market?

Actually, b8s are more clever than this. In this case OP is simply retarded.

Baiting and retardation aren't mutually exclusive.

Sage retard thread.
Don't reply to retard posters.
Ignore retard posts
>>
>>52267995
It used to be like that, it has been free for years.
>>
>>52268089
It's b8, OP is a faggot and has posted this thread multiple times the last three days. (Notice how OP isn't even interacting within his own thread)
>>
>>52267608

This place is more and more /b/ like every fucking day.
I wonder if this is on purpose? I wonder if Moot 2.0 has got something special planned?
