Thanks for the info. Hymn seems to be a reincarnation of Playfair,
which is an OSS application that can read Apple iTunes songs (used
on the iPod music player). Apple is apparently unhappy about
Playfair, successfully taking it down in both the US and India.
Kudos to Anand Babu for taking over as maintainer of Hymn.
Apple could be happy that:
1-Hymn makes iTunes interoperable with Gnu/Linux
2-Thunder takes Apple machines to a very high supercomputing grade.
Thunder, I think runs on a 1000+ Apple machine cluster.
AB is behind both Hymn and Thunder.
Apple should instead, find ways to reward AB :)
