Hate to pee in your wheaties but OS X is built using Xcode. Openstep and NeXTSTEP used Project Builder to build the operating system.

The internal build system for an Operating System being different than an application, one does take into account the tools to build the kernel so on and so forth that are not actually part of Xcode but are custom to Apple, as par for the course.

However, if you think Final Cut Pro or any Apple Development or App specific application to be small then I'd love to see your project.

Why then can I build the entire Darwin system without Xcode?

Darwin != OS X

Darwin may be the underlying core of OS X, but it doesn't contain the Cocoa, Carbon and pretty much any other framework that makes OS X function.

Does XCode function without a GUI? If not, and OSX is built on it, where does the GUI come from?

OSX may be made on gcc, but I'm struggling to see how OSX could be built with a tool that requires OSX to run.

[rolls eyes]

How does a compiler work without a host operating system? how does a compiler compile itself?

Good lord, and as for the complaining; does anyone here actually spend the time and update their software? XCode 2.2 is released - along with the updates, GCC 4.0.1 corrects some file bloat which someone here is complaining about.

So before whinge, whine, complain and belly ache; spend a wee bit of time researching whether it has already been corrected via patch or update, becuse shock horror, some companies actually do that! support their own products! :-)
