    Mac Ports vs Homebrew
    I currently have MacPorts installed on my Mac. I will admit that I'm not like the usual user that installs many different ports. I just install one or two.
    However reading up on it; I understand that there are many who prefer Homebrew even though MacPorts is sponsored by Apple.

    I am wonder which of the two better integrates the software / ports into the standard MacOS.
    From most that I'm reading, I believe that its Homebrew. But on the other hand, Homebrew does not have as many packages as MacPorts does. And from what I hear, it is not advisable for you to have both installed on one system.
    Once You've had Mac, you can't go back.... So very true.
