Mac OS X at Odds With Linux
,----[ Quote ]
| Mac OS X's BSD-based kernel puts it at the Unix end of the OS spectrum
| and thus ripe for comparison with Linux. And this is precisely what's
| been happening as of late. Some in the IT industry have called OS X on
| the carpet for perceived problems compared to Linux.
| That certainly got the attention of the Apple crowd. Some pro-Mac
| pundits have gone so far as to defend against the notion that Linux
| should replace the Darwin kernel for OS X.
