 Mac OS X Software thats open source

Great article that describes a list of Mac OS X open source applications. Its a nice list. I look for software to play with when I get bored and there were several in this list I had not heard of. Smultron and Preferential Treatment both look interesting, so check it out while I play with Smultron.

"If you want to make use of open source software on a Macintosh running OS X, you have plenty of options. The Fink project modifies Unix/Linux open source packages to run on Mac OS X, and gives users the ability to build from source or download precompiled binaries. Many open source packages have native OS X versions -- Firefox, Thunderbird, Abiword, Nvu, and the GIMP among them. But if you dig deeper, you will find quite a few Mac-only open source software gems. Here are a few of the best open source programs written specifically for Mac OS X."
