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.

I don't specifically mention Solaris in the article, but I do link to an article about Sun and Apple possibly merging. Sun worked with NeXT to create OPENSTEP and already ported it to Solaris.
