        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".

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

            Then there's "Unix" the generic term.
