Thanks to all.  Looks like it's going to be a "guess and test" to
find an OS I really like.  I'm probably eventually going to get
Panther when it comes out.  Since I work for a school...academic
price is nice and cheep! :)

Again, thanks to all.

or you can use the DarwinPorts collection, which has Apple support
behind it (longtime FreeBSD users will recognize Jordan Hubbard is:
he's on the DarwinPorts team).

I used Fink for quite a while but it seemed to lose focus on
reliability. I moved to darwinports (which offers source code ports
and packages) and it seems to work just fine.
