A quick update for those of you going through Leopard news withdrawal. Macworld reports that the Open Group has certified the latest OS X release as a UNIX operating system:

The UNIX 03 certification entitles Apple to officially brand Leopard as a UNIX operating system, but more importantly, the certification also guarantees software developers considering supporting the operating system that Mac OS X libraries, system calls, commands and utilities are all vetted as real UNIX code.

The story says that Apple is one of only four companies to hold such certification. HP, IBM and Sun are the others.
