Open source software installs on new eMac

I installed Neo Office 1.2 alpha late yesterday.

I am reinstalling tex, texshop, R and Grass on my new eMac which means X11 first, from my Mac OS X DVD. Then R which installs G77 the fortran compiler and also tsk(sp?). Then over to tex shop and the i-installer to install X11 apps for teXshop. Then install teX again with i-installer. Then finally texshop itself. Then Grass which might wait until tomorrow. teX2005 includes code for both Mac architectures Mac PPC and Mac Intel which means the open source developers are already designing for the new intel Macs before the hardware is for sale.
