    Which do you use for Unix software, which one has the best(most up to date, most "complete") repositories?

    Fink seems to be the most robust in my experience.

    MacPorts is Darwin Ports. Usually, MacPorts has more up-to-date packages than Fink.

    Both can co-exist if necessary, but Fink is likely to be the most useful.

    Fink is as old as dinosaurs
    darwinport asks for Xcode Tool, (2G?)

    for that space, I would think about bootcamp+linux.
