Unix on a Mac?

March 3, 2007

People don’t think of the Macintosh as a Unix platform. Say “Unix,” and most people will answer “Sun,” “DEC,” “SGI,” or “HP.” Not “Mac.” But why not? It’s just a computer. If an MS-DOS box can see the light, why not a Macintosh? That’s the question we asked ourselves when we looked at two different Unix implementations on the Mac.

Apple Computer and Tenon Intersystems took two different approaches in putting Unix on the Macintosh. Both aim to maintain compatibility with existing Mac applications, but Apple’s A/UX replaces the standard Macintosh operating system and provides a compatibility layer to let native Mac applications work. Tenon’s MachTen takes the alternative approach, running a whole Unix virtual machine as a single task under MacOS. Neither approach is perfect, but both accomplish the same thing: a fully functional Unix, on a Macintosh.
