Well said. My experience as well. Some OSes meet those needs more
readily, but that's another discussion.

I have found this to be very much NOT the case. While the kernel
might be BSD-based, the environment seemed very un-BSD-like. The last
time I used a Mac, I did so specifically for the purpose of
familiarizing myself with the system from the command line. The areas
where BSD and OSX are alike from CLI are the areas where any *nix
would be similar.
