I hear that Mac OS X and later ones are based on FreeBSD. My wife is
planning to get a Macbook , which I don't quite approve. Mainly
because we need to pay for any upgrade or new add ons.

But i see there is the 'ports' for Mac as in the case of FreeBSD. Is
it the same thing? Can we use FreeBSD ports on Macbook? That we I am
spared of paying profusely?
