Oh dear. Actually, the OS is called MacOS an the version is 10, or "X"
in roman numbers. And MacOS for the iPhone is still MacOS.

I have never seen the iPhone OS referred to as "Mac OS X" in Apple's materials. Any why would it be referred to as "Mac OS X"? It's *not* the Mac OS. It's the iPhone OS, and referred to by Apple as "OS X". Take a look for yourself, at this photo of an iPhone OS banner at WWDC '08:


But yes, no COMPAT_LINUX or COMPAT_DARWIN for arm I'm afraid. Though
even if there was, the Cocoa apps still wouldn't run.

COMPAT_LINUX for NetBSD/arm already exists.
