Darwin Ports when OS X Idiosyncracies Get You Down

I started using Darwin Ports when tools like hping3 and ctags didn’t work quite right on OS X. For example, the berkeley packet filter on OS X is totally different from the one on Linux, so hping3 wouldn’t compile correctly. Also, ctags in OS X doesn’t have the -R flag for recursion.

With Darwin Ports, I can install libraries and executables that don’t work quite right on OS X but work great on Linux.

SubEthaEdit for Linux?

SubEthaEdit is a fun editor that links coders via OS X’s chat. You and your friends can see each other’s cursor in the editor and edit accordingly. From a management perspective, it’s quite satisfying to see your coders collaborate on the same tough problem that crops up and you have to have everyone talk about it.

Dear Lazy Web,

I have two questions:

Is there a SubEthaEdit for Linux?

What collaborative technologies do you use for coding?


PS I use eclipse, svn, pastebin, IM, IRC, and sometimes ventrilo. I would love to just use SubEthaEdit though.
