homebrew's pretty ok for nerd stuff but half the time the homebrew version is badly out of date compared to the real version

desktop gui type software sucks on mac because every company that makes quality stuff does that scam where they release a new "major version" every year that does nothing new except conform to the current UI trends and they try to charge you full price for it.

relative terms - deader than, not dead. there was a complaint about outdated software - this probably isnít going to be better for macports. homebrew has most stuff I need and use, but each have a lot of stuff that the other doesnít. homebrew is more modern and active and is the Ďdefaultí package management suggestion for that reason, no?

Office for Mac is, has, and always will be inferior to the PC version. Nevertheless, it's still good.

Years ago there was almost no good mac software, but recently Microsoft has been releasing more mac software.
