Well... MacOSX isn't based on BSD exactly. It uses a mach kernel, and
is based on NeXTStep. It uses some BSD style conventions for utilities
like ps(1), ls(1) and cc(1), but I wouldn't characterize it as BSD.
The mach kernel has relatively little in common with the BSD kernel.
And those Mac apps that are ported to OS X will most likely use the
Carbon interface, which hasn't been ported to any (other) *nix platform
that I'm aware of, and almost certainly won't be.
