I don't know who wrote this originally, but what is wrong with porting Linux
onto a Mac?  NetBSD may be better for you (in your eyes), but I suggest
everyone wait and see how MacLinux stands once it has been around the
block for awhile.  The MacLinux group has promised quite a lot, but I for
one am willing to wait and see how well it matches to it's claims. 

I for one am waiting to see which party comes out with an version that will
run on my Mac.  Yes, I'm too cheap to buy A/UX but then again I guess we
all are if we are running Linux/NetBSD =).

Having the source to any program particularly the operating system can give
developers an advantage when developing an application.  It all depends on
what you want to do.  In your case, you probably don't work too much with
the kernel.

Well I gather this is a mail list for macbsd, so if you want a fair 
comparison, you'll have to wait until the Linux group wheels out there
finished product.
