untrue, MacOS is UNIX.

GNU/Linux is not UNIX and it is moving away from the UNIX way more and more. Its only partially POSIX-compatible and the GNU itself says about it pretty clearly (as an acronym). I hate it about Linux. I wish it was the real UNIX but its not.

But none of the more recent releases are. (http://www.opengroup.org/openbrand/register/).

If they were, it would properly have said "or later" as shown by the IBM and HP entries.

It is all up to the money. If Apple pays the fees, then the more recent releases would be.

But since they didn't maintain the certification, no, OS X 10.<anything but 8> are not certified UNIX.

OS X 10.8 (a.k.a. Mountain Lion) is the latest version.
