Re: [vox] Help with Books on OS X and Linux Apps???

Most "Linux applications" are not really Linux-specific.  As MacOS X is 
BSD-ish inside, there should be plenty of opportunities for 
building/installing current open source apps with it.

The details will vary a great deal both by application and over time, so I 
doubt you'll find any book about it that's terribly useful.  Mostly it's 
going to be a matter of downloading the source for some app, reading the 
README, and doing what it says.

Though coming from someone who has yet to use OS X (but plans to try it 
out), I hope this is mildly helpful.  :-)
