    GNU Darwin

    Anyone used GNU Darwin? I was playing with it on an iBook at a store the other day, it seemed like a really nice little system.

    I always wished I had the $$$$ to justify buying an Apple PC. They always seem to have pretty steep prices on their hardware when compared to what you can get with *86 platforms.

    I've heard the difference described as being similar to that between a Honda Accord and a Lexus. Someday when that money tree I planted begins yielding a harvest, I'm getting a Mac AND a Lex

    I have used GNU Darwin a bit on my Powerbook and it's not bad. I like the feel of it better than the vanilla darwin releases from Apple, but it seems as if GNU Darwin is a bit sloppy in some areas.
