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.

The description linked from that Fink interview is wrong too. Cut buffers are a 1980s legacy. They're obsolete. If Apple and/or XFree engineers are trying to connect Apple's clipboard to the X11 clipboard via Cut buffers then someone needs to show them the "new features" of X11R6 (how old is that now?)

Hopefully the poor understanding is restricted to the guy who wrote the FAQ. If not I'll take a look tomorrow when I can get at an OS X machine and start filing some bugs <sigh>
