But just take it.. the X stands for 10
It hasn't been always unix until it was X. You are right, X stands for 10, so the correct way to read is mac os ten.

So why then, on the packaging, after the X is 10.6.xx

Is it "OS ten ten point six point ....." NO!

I swear apple need to just go die quietly in the corner! Not only can they not even get a working aerial without stealing patents, it's pretty obvious they can't count either!

Prior to Mac OS X, MacOS was a set of self-actualizing APIs, not so much an operating system. It certainly wasn't based on *nix.

NeXTSTEP was Unix-based. Mac OS X is an evolution of NeXTSTEP.
