Mac OS X Apple had their pick of kernels when transitioning from OS 9 to OS X, and they chose to create their own kernel based on Mach 3.0. Was that really the best decision or did Apple make a huge mistake? At the time Linux was gaining support and developing rapidly, while development on Mach had pretty much ended two years earlier. This article makes a case for Apple using the Linux kernel in a future version of the Mac OS.

Yeah Linux on everything, Linux on Servers, Linux on desktop, Linux on cell phones, Linux on cars, Linux on brain chips, Linux on TVs, Linux on (put something here). Is Linux a cult or an operating system?
