Darwin is the core operating system that lies under both Mac OS X and iPhone OS. It is the true core foundation that bridges the kernel to the actual UI above. (SpringBoard/loginwindow/etc).

With the help of @plus_chan and his Nokia N900, I present to you, Darwin/ARM running on a Nokia N900.

I doubt this has any usefulness whatsoever, but that doesn't make it any less awesome. Great work (via Steven Troughton-Smith).

Does this mean we could compile Darwin for an Android phone, and copy over the iOS userland (from a jailbroken iPhone, say) and run iOS apps natively on any ARM-based phone?

Obviously there's legal issues involved here, but legally possible != technically possible
