Yes. I'm being sarcastic.[/quote]

[quote]No, you're being confused.

OS X's kernel (which is what you're referring to) is Darwin - a unique kernel designed for OS X.
Darwin is Mach based, not BSD. There is BSD code in Darwin, but that doesn't make Darwin an out and out BSD kernel.

Furthermore, OS X is a product name (not an individual software component) which includes:
* Darwin (the aforementioned kernel),
* Aqua (OS X's user interface),
* Cocoa (which is OS X APIs and widgets),
* and numerous other tools (eg CLI shells), applications (eg Safari) and so forth.

Each on their own is not an OS, but OS X as a product /IS/ an operating system.[end quote]

Which part of I was being sarcastic didn't you get?

The part where you made exactly the same point about Windows but non-sarcastically - thus bringing doubt on just how "sarcastic" you were intending to be with your addition.

Plus, sarcastic or not, you still got your technology completely wrong (re BSD, Darwin and what exactly OS X is).

If you were intending to write a nonsense point that was completely inaccurate (why anyone would want to is beyond me), then why make it twice?
