OSNews, Generic OSes So, I've been sitting on this one for a few days now, since I decided to let the sensationalist headlines pass by before I took a stab at it. Developer Christina B. has started - and released code for - an amazingly intriguing project: implementing Darwin/BSD on top of the Linux kernel. Just to make this absolutely clear: it's not her intention to allow iOS applications to run on this new, hybrid system. Let me reiterate: it's not her intention to allow iOS applications to run on this new, hybrid system. This, however, does not make this project any less interesting.

That's what I thought as well. I mean, that's what uname says I have on my Mac.

But then I wanted to make sure before I posted, so I checked: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Darwin_%28operating_system%29#...

...and Now I'm even more confuzed, obviously.

Why are you confused?

Darwin is the OS with XNU as kernel.

OS X is Darwin + more.
