I totally disagree. I even think that OS X should be free. I think so because OS X runs on Unix, and the person who created Unix believed that ass software should be free. But, Apple took Unix, and made people pay for the operating system.

Unix is not free, maybe you're talking about linux and the likes (bsd),.
Unix is actually quite expensive, and by unix i mean, Solaris, HPUX, Irix, AIX etc.

although i think solaris 10 by Sun Microsystems might be free, not 100% sure..

The Linux kernel must be free because that is how it is licensed. You can charge for support (redhat) or how you distribute it.
