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?

My guess would be you've been running iOS on your iPhone and iPad, not OS X.

Read the whole post again, not just what you quoted. Thom was pointing out that this guy ported Darwin, not OS/X, and iOS uses Darwin just like OS X is, so clearly a Darwin ARM port is not a new thing.
