A column at osOpinion gives Apple 10 bits of advice, including this: "Apple should continue to support the good work at Open Packages, duplicate the FreeBSD Ports system for Mac OS X and build a
beautiful, usable front-end on top of it all. A unified packaging system is a strong strategic advantage for the BSDs. For extra credit here,
Apple could interface the head of the Ports system directly into iDisk."
