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.

http://developer.apple.com/cocoa/

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

Here is a site with examples and help
