Hi there, I'm thinking about buying a Powerbook sometime in January (once my next student loan comes through and I have a bit more purchasing power!) but wanted to do a little background research first. I currently use Linux on a Dell laptop and use it mostly for programming and web stuff, I've heard a lot about Mac OS X being (sort of) UNIX based and having the familiar Terminal interface. So, few quick questions: - What kind of (preferably open source or freeware) development tools are there? - Same as above but for 'classic' widely used languages such as C/C++, BASIC, Java etc - Same again but low level and dirty, assembler type? - My first desire would be to get a decent C compiler, is there a Mac version of gcc (or alternative)? Also as a kind of side hobby I collect "antique" computers, Spectrums, Amigas etc that kind of thing. I've just won a Powerbook 520c on eBay (spec here) and it'd be nice to do a little programming on that as well. Bearing in mind its age and specs would it be possible to do any programming on that too (C being my langauge of choice but not limited to it)?
