Easy to port X11 applications<br> With the complete suite of the standard X11 display server software, client libraries and developer toolkits, X11 for Mac OS X makes it even simpler to port Linux and Unix applications to the Mac. Based on XFree86 4.2.1, X11 for Mac OS X gives you a complete, rootless X11R6.6 implementation, as well as display server and client libraries ? plus headers in the SDK. X11 for Mac OS X supports ssh tunnelling for secure display sharing. You can download all the common toolkits from OpenDarwin.org.<br><br>So, one still needs to port the apps. one by one right. But, that will take no time as far as I understand.<br><br>

There are allready quite alot ported, you just need to use fink ( http://fink.sourceforge.net ) Which is an app which will install/compile apps on your mac. Very usefull but you run it in terminal (or an Xterm if you have x11 installed). I have been using X11 on top of darwin for a while with Xdarwin, I will tryout apples version though.<br><br>"...
