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.

try BSD Mall

I already read this article a week ago. You can also get all these packages in an easy to install format on cd-rom from BSD Mall. It's called UNIX Utilities for OS X. I bought it and plan to install it on my eMac when I get it - the eMac- in a few days.
