Maybe. Actually, Mac OS X doesn't use a stock FreeBSD kernel. It uses a
modified Mach kernel (the way NT uses a "modified microkernel") called
"XNU". Many of XNU's BSD parts were forked from FreeBSD (a few parts
come from other BSDs).

You can get the source from http://www.opensource.apple.com . It's the
'xnu' project, after selecting a version of Mac OS X.

That might be true, but AJ doesn't seem to be warm to the idea of doing
this in Wine.
