    Hello all,

    For those of you who are a bit more UNIX/Linux savvy

    I would like to find out as much as anyone can offer regarding MAC OS X Darwin (lite - which runs on the ipod touch). I have no experience with MAC's OS X framework; although it is similar to the versions of UNIX & Linux which I do have experience. So the following are my questions:

    1. Does anyone have a MAC running DARWIN? If so, have you tried transfering 'make' and other dev tools to the ipod touch with positive results?

    2. If you have any experience with this, please advise where I can start in that I would like to obtain a copy of these dev tools for my own expreimentation.

    3. Does MAC provide copies of this MAC OS X to the general public under a GPL license? where can I obtain a copy of it? What hardware will it run on? (i386/686)?

    4. Since there is a 'BSD subsystem' will all BSD based UNIX executables run in the MAC OS X (Darwin) environment?

    Thanks All
