Linux As we all know, Mac OS X has support for what is called 'fat binaries'. These are binaries that can carry code for for instance multiple architectures - in the case of the Mac, PowerPC and x86. Ryan Gordon was working on an implementation of fat binaries for Linux - but due to the conduct of the Linux maintainers, Gordon has halted the effort.

I agree, it's pointless

Sorry but give me repositories with all possible thin binaries. Fat binaries only make sense ignoring package managing. Never like the idea, glad to see it gone.
