MacOS X + 3

March 24, 2004 at 10:12 pm | Posted in Macintosh | 2 Comments

Today marks the third anniversary since the official release of MacOS X — Ars Technica has a review and history. Since Linux is not (technically) Unix, one could say that Apple has the largest Unix installed base (10 million+).


  1. I think we can all agree that Unix was started by AT&T, which then allowed (willingly or not) Berkeley to create the BSD version, from which came the various *BSD variants, from which Darwin is descended. Once one accepts that BSD is Unix, then it must follow that OSX is Unix.The Unix(TM) trademark is a different issue, and has resulted in SCO elevating extortion into an art form.

  2. Of course, the Open Group disputes the fact that Mac OS X is Unix. Wonder what ever happened to that lawsuit.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
