Darwin is the core operating system that lies under both Mac OS X and iPhone OS. It is the true core foundation that bridges the kernel to the actual UI above. (SpringBoard/loginwindow/etc).

With the help of @plus_chan and his Nokia N900, I present to you, Darwin/ARM running on a Nokia N900.

I doubt this has any usefulness whatsoever, but that doesn't make it any less awesome. Great work (via Steven Troughton-Smith).

It is. This is the sort of thing the alternative OS scene used to be about: doing cool shit just because you could. Who cares if it's useful? The guy now gets to say: "You know OS X? Yeah I made the kernel run on a 'phone."
