I just learned about Darwin today, but the documentation I am finding, is honestly a little over my head.
I understand that Darwin is the project for essentially, the underbelly of Mac OS X (with no GUI).
From the above website, I see that Mac OS X 10.4 has the binary available.
What EXACTLY is missing from Darwin as compared to OS X.
They recommend installing the X11 X Windows Manager. How does this compare to OS X? There is mention of Quartz, how does this compare?
I would consider myself very knowledgeable in Windows, somewhat knowledgeable in Linux, but completely oblivious when it comes to UNIX, and even more so with OS X.
So, from what I have gathered, I can run X11 apps (on a PC) if I install Darwin and X11 Desktop Manager. Will I be able to run Mac programs? What will be the difference in Mac OS X and Darwin with X11.
Is it possible to essentially build OS X using Darwin, X11 (or another), and other packages?
And finally, any information or explanations people have on the Darwin Project.
Thank you very much
