"I mean, when you call "android" a linux, then OSX is a BSD. Whether Free or not.

By the logic that Android is Linux, OS X would be Mach.

I'd love to see an analysis of OS X to see just how much BSD derived code there is in there compared to code from other sources.

Mach doesn't really have a userland. In order to get a working Mach system up & running, the normal approach is to use a BSD userland. So, no matter how you look at it, MacOS X's architecture is consistent with various parts of the BSD tree.
