the MAC computer part is Hardware, just like the PC part is just hardware. The OS is really immaterial... you can RUN Linux/Unix on a PC too, that doesnt make it any more open than the MAC OS. It just means the hardware is compatible with the software. Linux would be an open OS, Windows, Mac OS are both closed OS.
