Dear Friends,

Gentoo on OSX totally rocks :)  As one who has extensively used both DP 
& F, and who has [through unusual & controversial means] hack-ported 
Imendio's Planner to Darwin (see the Fink & Imendio mailing lists for 
great controversy), it seems to me that Gentoo is the Way ... I'm 
planning, in humility, to offer to help in the emerging :)  (will email 
you soon, Hasan Khalil), ... to integrate linux with OSX is like a 
dream :)

Cheers,
Patrick
