MacOSX user? Try fink

Lately I’ve been fooling around with more platforms at home. I think now I have all the important ones represented (MacOSX, Windows, Linux and Solaris Sparc), and I’m probably about to blow a fuse unless I start distributing these things around the house (I think I already blew a NIC in one of the boxes).

Anyway, I was told by a Machead friend recently about Fink and I have to say I am really impressed with it.

Fink is a little like Cygwin for the Mac, the GNU tools and programs ported over and running natively on top of regular MacOSX.

PS: My apologies to BeOS, AmigaOS et al for not mentioning them, but these really are the important ones (although I do keep an amiga emulator handy)..
