OPENSTEP's Mach/BSD amalgam is the basis for Apple's Mac OS X
operating system."

Is that BSD in there? Ummm...

Apple took over OPENSTEP, no wonder they "selected" NextStep.

OSX is based on the Mach kernel, not the bsd kernel.

"Apple selected OPENSTEP to be the basis for the successor of 
the classic Mac OS. It became the Cocoa API of Mac OS X. 
OPENSTEP is in fact an upgraded version of NeXTSTEP, which 
used Mach 2.5. As such, OPENSTEP's Mach/BSD amalgam is the 
basis for Apple's Mac OS X operating system."
