Evolution and Open Source Software (last roar of the dinosaurs)

,----[ Quote ]
| Symbian, the giant maker of that well 
| known operating system for cell phones is 
| an inspiration. By announcing that it was 
| going to release 'billions of pounds worth 
| of Intellectual Property' as Open Source 
| software it made the BBC news.
| Hoorah! Symbian will join the likes of 
| Android OS and Linux, thereby making OSS 
| the dominant software of the phone market. 
| Good luck to them I say...hmm, but hang on 
| I've heard this story somewhere before.
