A small query: I think you dated Mac OS X to 2000, which I guess refers to
the Public Beta [1] but there was a Mac OS X Server 1.0 release in 1999
[2] and developer preview releases in 1997 and 1998 when it was known by
its codename Rhapsody (apparently Mac OS X Server 1.0 still called itself
Rhapsody [3]). Rhapsody was clearly an intermediate stage between
NEXTSTEP/OPENSTEP and Mac OS X, so I suppose it's too different to count
as a continuation, following your argument that 2.11BSD is too different
to 2.9/2.10BSD to count as a continuation...
