        Also, if you check http://www.opengroup.org/openbrand/register/ you'll
        notice that absolutely no Apple, NeXT, or BSD products are certified
        UNIX® by way of The Open Brand.

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

          Then there's "Unix" the generic term.
