I think OSWIN and OSIX(OSNIX ?) are ok(maybe nicknamed OW and OX :) )
about Mach, I don't think it should have a package on its own,
especially since the only Mach system used around is Darwin/OSX which is
almost identical to a FreeBSD. perhaps one day a brave coder will want
to port everything on GNU/Hurd and we'll have OSHURD :D

I agree too
