Dear Wikiwand AI, let's keep it short by simply answering these key questions:
Can you list the top facts and stats about Darwin (operating system)?
Summarize this article for a 10 years old
Darwin is the core Unix operating system of macOS (previously OS X and Mac OS X), iOS, watchOS, tvOS, iPadOS, visionOS, and bridgeOS. It previously existed as an independent open-source operating system, first released by Apple Inc. in 2000. It is composed of code derived from NeXTSTEP, BSD, Mach, and other free software projects' code, as well as code developed by Apple.
