What you're arguing (and I guess you *have* been arguing this for a
while now) is that Mac OS X is really a different beast than Unix.

But, what happens with the different Linuxes that ship with GUIs? I
don't know Mac OS X well, but AFAICT, this same logic would apply to
Caldera (and maybe the other Linux distributions as well). They are
striving to be like Mac OS X; GUI environments with a Unix core.

But I find myself agreeing more and more with you, anyway.
