      it's really funny how people consider anything but the BSDs to be "unix" these days, they're nothing but approximations made to steal from the white man, also macOS doesn't even use a UNIX kernel so calling it UNIX is kinda weird

        For something to be Unix, I pretty sure it has to have a POSIX compliant interface. A kernel can be whatever it wants

      macOS still uses the Aqua interface though, it's not like it's been renamed.

        It hasn't been renamed but it's pretty obvious what he means. Aqua was called that because "it's liquid, one of the design goals was when you saw it you wanted to lick it"
        OS X hasn't looked like that since 10.9 came out.

    They made a significant step back. Now new macs don't come with a working version of Tcl/Tk. It's fricking shit. Worthless. That was the one single good thing about MacOS.

      but aren't most of the included utilities at some outdated version, so they would need to be updated anyway?

        Yes.

        Normies don’t need these tools. For others, the installation of the command line tools provides many of the command line tools for those who need them.

        This reduces the size of base macOS.

        There’s also the problem of GPL 3 code.

        I believe macOS app developers have been told to embed command line tools into their applications, should they need the latest version.

      It's more "UNIX" now than it used to be.
      When that advert was made, OS X didn't even have a POSIX compatible file system.
      They used the file system from OS 8 that didn't even have case sensitivity, file permissions, etc. and relied on a VFS layer on top to emulate the basic features of a UNIX file system.

    It's still true that they turned famously abstruse Unix into a neat, user-friendly, well-supported platform. What's not true is the implication that they're the only game in town. You can get an equally good or even better experience with Linux these days.

    Not really, the base image is really bloated. 530 running processes. Arch does just fine with 4 GB allocated to KVM, this bloat beast needs at least 16 to run properly. And even with 8 vCPU it lags pretty bad
