    I've noticed there are a lot of different 'programs' to use or referred to.
    Yellowsn0w, Redsn0w, Purplra1n, QuickPwn, Pwnage, etc.

    My question is what are the differences, if any?
    Are some of them just for Mac or PC?

    How do you choose the 'right' one? Thanks!

    Depends on what you want to do, jailbreak or unlock
    Model of phone 3G, 3GS, 2G
    Mac or PC
    Version of firmware you want to use

    Only tool available at this time for 3.1 is Pwnage Tool for Mac. It does work on the 3G and if you are Apple Unlocked, you're fine.
