https://groups.google.com/forum/?fromgroups#!topic/puredarwin/72stXsTqVCo Not that I have much love for Apple... But I've experimented with the older versions of PureDarwin, and I thought they had a lot going for them. In particular I noticed it had a lot of CLI functionality that Linux doesn't - e.g. a daemon for mounting external drives, which (unlike UDisks) can be properly used from the command line and (unlike OpenBSD's hotplugd) doesn't require knowledge of regular expressions. Anyway IMO it's great to see progress on bringing PureDarwin up to date; pretty much any addition to the UNIX kingdom is welcome. NB: if anyone wants to try this out, keep in mind that driver support for real hardware is probably all but nonexistent right now.
