Er, no. There is nothing Unix "-like" about NeXTSTEP, which is the basis for the MacOS; both NextSTEP and MacOS *are* Unixes descending from BSD 4.4.
Apple had done a lot of excellent software when Jobs came in from Next and decided to bring NextStep with him. Hypercard and Applescript, for example. OpenDoc had tremendous promise, I thought, to simplify application development, although it had gotten a little ahead of what was typical hardware resources for the era (e.g. it added 2 MB of RAM to an app's memory requirements at a time when RAM ). Appleworks, given its origin in the era of 128K RAM memories, was quite impressive. Al Gore's *An Inconvenient Truth* started life as an Apple Keynote presentation he'd put together; Keynote was originally developed by Apple software guys for Steve Jobs' use.
What Apple wasn't really good at until Jobs came back was business. They had a confusing large (and thus expensive to build and hard to market) product line. They had bad, often schizophrenic relationships with partners, developers, and indeed enterprise customers.
