My coworker told me today that early versions of the Mac OS (9, 8, 7, 6 and what ever was before that) were based on UNIX. I told him he was flat out wrong. I said that Mac OS X is based on UNIX but not the earlier versions. He was very insistent that they were. Again, I told him he was wrong and that I would ask everyone here and see, what, if anything the Mac OS was based on. He used to own a Mac Plus and a Mac IIsi.
