Mac OS X It's still early days, but this has the potential to put more fuel on the Apple rumour mill fire than anything else in recent times. A BA thesis by Dutch student Tristan Schaap details how, during his internship at Apple's Platform Technologies Group, he ported Darwin to a certain ARMv5 developer board. A few blog articles later, and the headline has already turned into 'Mac OS X ported to ARM'. So, what have I been running on my iPhone and iPad all these years?

Having worked on some of the after affect bugs on an OS that had recently been ported (at the time, not recently) to a 64 bit architecture I can say what he did was still a ton and a half of work.
