    I tried looking for it on Fink's website and also on Macports website, but did not find enough information for me to decide which is more ready for Snow Leopard.

    To all of those who managed to get find a way to install Snow Leopard:

    Which do you think is more ready? Fink, or Snow Leopard? Tomorrow when I get my copy of SL, I want to know what to put there. I currently use Fink, but do not mind moving to Macports.

    I have both (I use Fink when I can). Fink seems to work fine, though SL isn't officially supported yet, so some things might not work. For MacPorts, the latest released version doesn't work on SL, but if you install it from SVN it works. Some packages don't build correctly, though.
