In reply to guestx:

Apple had to abandon its update to Mac OS 9 (Rhapsody) and effectively put the MAC OS on top of NextSteps Darwin core. NT and XP were rewrites of Windows but were arguably based on VMS (and indeed Microsoft used lots of VMS specialists to do it). Nothing has really changed. The 2 really interesting OS projects in the 1990s (Acorn's Gallileo and BEOS) never fully made it.
