One of my classmate and I have a huge discussion over OSX's Unix system.

He says OSX is Unix because its certified by the opengroup as Unix compliant.
I believe OSX not Unix because it combines Mach and BSD to form OSX's XNU.

I understand the Unix part is certified, but I am hesitant to call it a Unix system simply because of its hybrid kernel.
