RE: RE: [JDEV] yahoo issues anyone?Actually the Mach kernel came out of a
research project at CMU (Carnegie Mellon University) not SMU, and as has
already been said is not just for BSD but is used in a lot of other systems,
but yes coming back to the main point Darwin is based on BSD/Mach just as
FreeBSD is based on BSD but that still does not mean MacOSX is FreeBSD, its

Anyway I think thats enough of this argument ;), if anyone still wants to
argue about this I suggest we take it off list or that you do some googling.

Mach project website for anyone interested:

The Mach kernel, which came out of SMU, is a small computer version of  the
BSD kernel.
So it may not be FreeBSD, but it essentially BSD ( as opposed to other
flavours of Unix).
(Unix ROCKS :)

Urm no actually its MacOSX which runs on Darwin which uses the Mach kernel,
its not FreeBSD.
