    wow you really want to know tech details

    firstly check out any wikipedia articles

    OS X is based on BSD so you may want to look at its history

    OS X is based on the NEXT operating system so you may want to look at that as well as BSD, it is basically a UNIX core

    You probably want to learn Cocoa, which is Apple's framework for creating programs on OS X.

    And you probably want to learn Objective-C, which is C with some Smalltalk thrown in.

    Here is a site with examples and help
