    My apologies, I had read somewhere that Darwin was a version of Linux.

    I had been particularly impressed how the Linux type capabilities of
    Mac OS X have been increased with each new version with additions like
    X tools and xterm. Even perl Tk works on Mac OS X now, which was
    always a pain before especially in the days when one had to re-install
    perl to get perl Tk to work.
