As said, BSDs (and afaik Darwin too) use kqueue/kevent. (kevent is e.g. for
directory notifications).

Afaik kqueue is largely equivalent to epoll in functionality (and some
people  call it slightly more elegant even).

Note that this is all written in the first paragraph of the urls that you
quote ( http://daniel.haxx.se/docs/poll-vs-select.html ) :-)
