IMO those sound like some pretty self-serving OSS contributions ...
How about doing some stuff just for good-will ? Like sponsoring some of the
great work Eirc Anholt does for the *BSDs in terms of Xorg? Right now
*linux*fund pays him to do that ...
The likes of redhat/suse (pre-Novell) are much smaller than Apple, but I've
seem them do more for OSS in general which in turn effects the *BSDs.
