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).

Nothing wrong with that. If not for that kind of attitude, we wouldn't have half the technology advancements we have today.

But it is wrong. People should discover stuff and advance technology without feeling personal achievement.

Because sarcasm. :-p

Well, this project is far more useful than your comment and less egocentric to boot. So it has that going for it... which is nice.
