                     33: 
                     34: * how can we induce people to choose pkgsrc over Homebrew?
                     35:     * most people are looking for an OS-specific package manager
                     36:     * they don't realize they should look for cross-platform
                     37:     * I've learned that I should
                     38:     * we need to attract OS X users on their own terms
                     39:         * what if we managed /Applications, from source or not?
                     40:     * likewise for other platforms
                     41:     * what if we branded pkgsrc differently for each platform?
                     42:     * also concentrate on binary package experience
                     43:     * `pkgin` is a real nice user experience
                     44: * how are people finding their OS X binary packages?
                     45:     * screenshots they post on [/r/unixporn](http://www.reddit.com/r/unixporn)
