Comment on "Mac OS X is Six Years Old Today"
by Michael Ellis — Mar 24
MK, I disagree. Mac OS X is part NeXT, part classic Mac OS, and part something entirely new. All three pieces contributed to what Mac OS X has become, and the new stuff in recent years has brought OS X to an entirely new level. I think we all remember how difficult 10.0 and 10.1 were just to use, let alone develop for.

Let's face it, Mac OS X is still the NeXTStep OS with a facelift and a bunch of Mac libraries and frameworks ported to it. There's a lot of Mac OS stuff running on top of it, like Carbon, etc. but the OS itself and the core frameworks are NeXTStep.
