I would have thought that an O'Reilly web site would know what open source means. The article describes Xnippets as a "free open source application".
It's neither free (as in freedom): "40-Xnippet limit in place when you download", nor is any source available.

    Ooops, my bad. You can see why I need help from a second brain, can't you...?

    You're quite right, Xnippets is a shareware app, not open source at all.

    Mea culpa.
