I assumed that the sole purpose for their existence was during a period where people didn't know how to use computers and Windows was super buggy.

Since Windows 10, that period seems to have passed and if you can't use a computer today, you're basically unemployable.

Will they eventually lose relevancy? Is is merely status and design at this point?

It's a complete UNIX OS designed for ordinary consumers, the only one of its kind in that regard. And, unlike hobbyist UNIX-like OSs, it has professional support backing it.

Yes, OS X is UNIX.

"UNIX" is really just a trademarked name, applied by The Open Group, upon completion of a certification. Many different - not at all compatible - OSes are certified as a UNIX. OS X among them. Here is the current certification page for OS X 10.9 "Mavericks" as "UNIX 03" certified: http://www.opengroup.org/openbrand/register/brand3602.htm

Apple has submitted OS X for certification (and received it,) every version since 10.5. However, versions prior to 10.5 (as with many 'UNIX-like' OSes such as many distributions of Linux,) could probably have passed certification had they applied for it.

There are Linux distros with the certification. It's completely irrelevant, no one cares. My OS could be certified (there's a fork of RHEL that is) and it would change nothing. It's just an expensive piece of paper macfags like waving around, it doesn't mean the OS is good or anything.

>> No.68885092


>OSX hasn’t been certified UNIX for years

Nope, their certs are here. Most recent unix certification was Mojave, see for yourself


At the literal level, Mac OS X gained UNIX 03 certification with the release of Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard), and is as Unix as it is possible to be.

On a more subjective level, Mac OS X is merely a rewrite of replacement for the classic Apple operating system, Mac OS. The interesting aspect of Mac OS X is that it is a POSIX compliant OS that happens to use an XNU kernel, which can trace its roots to BSD. And that it was released as an open-source project, Darwin. The POSIX compliance lets software packages written for Linux or BSD be ported to Mac OS X.

Kek. To be POSIX-compliant, a system has to implement a lot of features. The POSIX standard is composed of four chapters that describe general system interface, the shell and basic utilities. Most of these things are absent, or present in a very different implementation, in Windows.
