Like D3v1L80Y already stated, It was just Mac OS. System up to 7.x.

The origional MacIntosh had 128K RAM and a Floppy drive. You put the OS Floppy in the drive and it would boot, Origional Mac OS was designed in house by the Macintosh team which was put together by Jobs. It had nothing to do with Unix in any way. It was the first GUI though that went public although where were other GUI's like Xerox's Small Talk system.

The first UNIX based Mac OS that went public was OSX.

Jobs was kind of stuborn when it came to a few things with the first Mac like 128k RAM and no Hard Drive nor External SCSI port. After he quit Apple, they came out with the 512 with 512Megs RAM but still no Internal nor External Hard drive. Then the Plus came out with a SCSI port in back for an external HDD which the Mac really needed.

OS8 and OS9 were just improved versions of OS7 before them. They did not have a thing to do with Nextstep nor Unix.
