A/UX is based on at&t Unix system v.2.2 with numerous extensions from V.3, V.4 and bsd 4.2/4.3. It also provides full posix compliance.

A/UX 3.x.x incorporates system 7 for the Macintosh, thus supporting the vast majority of Macintosh applications. System 7 and Unix are fully integrated under A/UX 3.x.x with the Unix file system being seen as a disk drive by the Finder.
