Yeah, I too don't like the freshmeat.net invasion by apps which do 
not include source.

For me, freshmeat.net has always been a mainstay of the OSS world - 
to see Microsoft ads and commercial software being pushed through it, 
well, that just saddens me... freshmeat.net will never compete with 
versiontracker.com, so why do they bother?

There is need for a real 'fresh meat' style source-code repository 
site, but one does have to wonder how its bills will be paid ...

Regardless though, its good to see NI Traktor on OSX.  If they can 
port from Windows->OSX, then they can port from OSX->Linux, I think
