Mach is a microkernel, The BSDs kernel is a monolithic kernel. Two different beasts.

So? Original Mach is still derived from a BSD kernel.
Yes, over time it changed significantly. Yes, Mach is a microkernel, the original BSD is not.
You know what? XNU isn't a microkernel either.

BSD portion is NOT part of the kernel.

I suggest that you look at the actual source code files of XNU instead of posting stuff you know only partially about.

Why in hell would I look at the source code? I'm not a C, C++ or Objective C developer, so it wouldn't mean much to me. That's like telling me to go read the Old Testament in ancient Hebrew.

Oh, and posting stuff you know only partially about is what the internet is all about, are you new or something?

I'm not a programmer either but I can at least look at the headers of source files and see plenty of original BSD copyright notices there.
