[wingide-users] Wing on Mac OS X

Well, after a few hours of effort, here're some
screenshots of Wing running on OS X 10.1
with GTK(AquaLightBlue theme)/OroborOSX/XDarwin:



It's a little sluggish on my iBook (G3-500MHz
with 576 MB RAM), but I think that is
a general Gtk problem.

It's not all working yet, there seem to be
some Linux-specific code for spawning
processes and so on so it can't find
or run Python. But I think that's
fixable with a little more effort. Just
wanted to let people know that
it's partially working ...

Archeo-folks: will send ChangeLogs
and some questions soon.
