Original OSNews Interviews A few days ago we featured an interview with one of Fink's project leaders regarding their package management solution which breeds more Unix software to MacOSX. Today, we host an interview with Jordan Hubbard regarding the DarwinPorts, speaking for the DarwinPorts Team which a similar effort to bring more Unix software on Mac OS X. Jordan is currently working at Apple and OpenDarwin (while many will know Jordan as the FreeBSD co-founder).

Thanks for making that clearer!

To make my post clear for RJW, quoting Stallman was done because he wrote Emacs, noted for its extension language, and so I'm inclined to think he has interesting views on this topic. His argument was that longterm needs need to balance with shortterm goals, because often it happens your software grows faster than your foundation lets it.

If he did recant his criticism, I'm not having much luck finding it; but I wouldn't be surprised if he did.

Mainly the whitespace criticism sounded like everyone else's whitespace criticism. ;) You hear it so often, it's surprising when there's a good usability argument in there.
