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).

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.

FWIW, my experience has been that the wider Lisp community looks on ELisp in about the same way RMS did TCL. No one I know of believes it's a well-designed (or implemented) language; most only tolerate it because there aren't any alternatives. Even the GNU folks were looking at replacing it with Guile.
