    I was reading up on different OS's and the history of OS X and came across PureDarwin.

    I see you can get a PureDarwin Nano VM (although I didn't download it). It's just a CLI and I have to ask, in order to better understand, what is the point of this? Surely it wouldn't so anything different that a Mac would in terminal or even booting directly into the CLI.

    If you use the nano it gives you a kernel and shell so you can drop you GNU utilities on top of it. It lets you build the system how you'd like it.
