   Perhaps current-day Mach users use different terminology, but in the
   "old days" (late '80s, early '90s, which was when I had the most
   exposure to the Mach community) people referred to their computer as
   running "Mach"; the term "BSD" never came up unless they were explaining
   the details of the implementation.

I'd consider myself part of the old-days, maybe not the early days,
but not current-day.
