Original OSNews Interviews Today, we host a mini-interview with Fink's project leader, Max Horn. The Fink project wants to bring the full world of Unix Open Source software to Darwin and Mac OS X. They modify Unix software so that it compiles and runs on Mac OS X and make it available for download as a coherent distribution. Fink uses Debian tools like dpkg and apt-get to provide powerful binary package management and you can choose whether you want to download precompiled binary packages or build everything from source.

Well with Apple's X11 ctrl-c and control-v seem to cut and paste just fine.

Mind you, I only use fink for GIMP and PAN, so it may be a GNOME thing.


This is application specific. It will not, for example, work with an xterm.
