Mac OS X "OS X is full of little design touches that have redefined what people expect from a personal computer, and which complement Apple hardware. In fact, you can't (legally) install the operating system on anything but a Mac, so the two are forever entwined - and that gives Apple advantages that other computer manufacturers simply don't have. Join us as we explore the world's most beautiful operating system and find out how Apple created it." Slightly nauseating hyperbole aside (I find Mac OS X bland and grey thank you very much), it's an interesting article.

Fluff marketing

I think the author drank WAY too much of the Apple kool-aid.

This is a marketing fluff piece, not a technical overview of "HOW" Apple created OS X.

As was previously mentioned, where is the mention of BSD as the kernel? What programming languages were used? How did they decide the various GUI design elements?
