Homebrew vs. Macports
For years I've been using Macports to easily manage and install open source packages. Before that I used Fink, but Fink for me was very prone to index corruption of some kind.
Macports served me well, especially when I use to have to set up a new mac with OpenVPN.
Lately, work friends have been using Homebrew. It seems slightly easier to install, and includes a few things I need that Macports doesn't. I've been happy with it so far.
So I'm officially switching as of now. I tried to make them coexist, which is possible, but it caused me to have to think too much about it.
I probably should stop using tcsh as my shell, since that is also getting to be an old man thing to do I guess. I'm not sure I can pull that off.
