You will get something GNU, something BSD (to some degree rather old) and something completely different at the surface. And you will experience true hell if you do something more technical under the surface and see what happens afterwards. But that's okay - Apple doesn't want to create a new UNIX system, instead an almost perfect desktop operating system is the goal. So if you want to see what is UNIX in Mac OS X:

It's made for the *desktop* and the UNIX per definition is for governmental agencies.
use UNIX or die :-)
