Or Mac OS X moves to use the FreeBSD kernel. It seems like I have heard
this before.

What kernel-level Mac OS X/Darwin features does FreeBSD lack? Its file
system? File bundles?

Any websites that quickly list differences between features and drivers
for FreeBSD and Darwin?

I have to wonder if Apple internally and secretly is already testing
FreeBSD to run its Mac OS X.
