Re: MacOSX -FreeBSD

 from Apple's web Darwin Mac OSX Opensource Pages

Mach 3.0 Kernel AND FreeBSD kernel (portions) 4.8 BSD
FreeBSD libraries (libc) 5.0/5.1 BSD

It has been mentioned OS X doesn't use procfs UNVERIFIED
------------THIS May indicate Heavy Lifting required when bug hunting -----
-------------------------Very cross-port implemented-----------------
Mac OS X provides a robust set of optimized libraries, making it easy to port your existing UNIX code. For example, a standard, multithreaded C library (libc) includes support for such capabilities as reentrant variants of standard functions (such as strtok_r), facilitating the porting of thread-aware applications to Mac OS X. For applications that require non-Roman character sets, Mac OS X supports wide character datatypes (wchar_t and others). Panther also supports UNIX/Linux portability APIs, including System V semaphores, so porting applications from versions of UNIX such as Linux and Solaris presents no problem.
Let's get a little more Accurate
