Am I correct in thinking that Apples operating systems are built on a form of Linux? I have had Windows machines and Apple computers over the years and I prefer Apple, due to the fact they don't crash nearly as much and seem to be a all around better product than windows. It would be nice if Microsoft would wake up and develop a new OS that is build on some form of Linux or Unix. Just my 2 cents

Great question.  I believe Apple's OS is basically based on BSD, a POSIX operating system.  I agree that it is seemingly more stable than Windows.  I doubt we will see Microsoft build a version of Windows based on Linux, but they have started including some features of Linux into their operating system.
