      And get hardcore sued by The Open Group :) OS X isn't UNIX certified.
      They'd have to say:

      "It's _UNIX-like_!!!! OS X is _UNIX-like_!!!!"

      or something.

        Are you sure?

        http://www.apple.com/macosx/technologies/darwin.html has a big UNIX
        gaphic and calls it a complete UNIX implementation.

          It says "UNIX-based foundation", "BSD UNIX implementation", and
          "popular UNIX scripting languages". It never says OS X *is* UNIX.

          Note that the big graphic says "UNIX based".

            Also, if you check http://www.opengroup.org/openbrand/register/ you'll
            notice that absolutely no Apple, NeXT, or BSD products are certified

              There's UNIX® the trademark owned by The Open Brand.

              Then there's "Unix" the generic term.
