Lesser known Facts about MAC


This one is one of the lesser know facts about MAC systems. I wouldn’t call this blog as a help blog, rather more of a information blog. Good to know stuff you see.

  • MAC OS is actually built on an operating system called Darwin
  • Darwin was made by Apple Inc.
  • Darwin is a free, open source operating system
  • It a Certified UNIX operating systems in the world, out of a handful of OS.
  • Darwin was acquired by Apple, when they bought Steve Jobs’ NeXT. NeXT was based on FreeBSD [FreeBSD is a free and open-source Unix-like operating system descended from the Berkeley Software Distribution, which was based on Research Unix. The first version of FreeBSD was released in 1993 ], so Darwin is based on BSD which means that macOS is actually BSD with the MacintoshDesktop Environment” as the user interface.
  • Darwin powers macOS, iOS, watchOS and tvOS, meaning that they are all macOS, just with a unique user interface on each one.
