Yes, it is. But it really is not really a particularly big deal. Apple worked very hard to make Darwin fully POSIX-compliant, but did not seek POSIX certification. Darwin is now the first BSD which has received UNIX 03 certification. This is a nice piece of paper to have, but it is not like your can suddenly do things now that you could not do before. But, it does give the Mac community bragging rights to the only official UNIX-based consumer-oriented operating system.this is a good thing.
