OS X is now UNIX 03 certified


Leopart gets UNIX 03 cert, what does this certification mean?

Basically OS X now meets the specifications that are required to be a "Unix" operating system. No flavor of Linux has yet met these specifications.

To the end user it probably doesn't really mean much, but in the corporate world, it means OS X is now considered to be peers with AIX 5L 5.3 , HP-UX 11i V3 Release B.11.31 and Solaris 10. A nice boost for OS X server and feather in Apple's cap.
