FreeBSD Not too long ago, Apple open sourced its Grand Central Dispatch library, which aids in developing multithreaded code. It was suggested that it could be ported to other platforms, and the FreeBSD team has done exactly that. They have also done a lot of work related to getting GCD to work in a POSIX environment.

Read between the lines on this one.

libdispatch was "ported" to FreeBSD. Which means that Mac OS X is NOT FreeBSD.

The FreeBSD team have done work to "get it running on a POSIX environment". Which means that Mac OS X is NOT a real POSIX environment. And presumably, not really UNIX.

Which is what I've been saying all along.
