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).

That wasn't quite the question, as the idea was to run Darwin and then copy the rest of the iOS stack from an iPhone to run on top of it. One reason why it wouldn't work is that none of the hardware has iOS drivers.
