unix on mac

on mac you can install OS X which will be released in its final version on March 24th. Its core is called Darwin and is built on FreeBSD. FreeBSD can also be installed on PCs.

Or you can just download Darwin for free and install it on a mac, it will not have any of the gui that OS X has.
