This week, a rumour appeared that indicated that OpenSolaris was no longer open. However, it seems that this story was the result of some confusion around new terms of another Sun product, and while many are worried about how long OpenSolaris really will be open, the current concerns seem a bit unfounded.
Also, this week Apple chimed-in on its open development platform strategy. Apple released a beta of the iPhone OS 4 SDK, including a new license agreement that bans Flash, but also may ban Appcelerator Titanium and other cross-platform development tools.
A good write-up on Apple's new terms is at http://daringfireball.net/2010/04/iphone_agreement_bans_flash_compiler.
These titan's of industry may have forgotten a basic principal of the Internet: Censorship is viewed as a network failure and the Net routes around it. And, a principal of Open Source Software (OSS): Software needs to be free.
