Well, last I heard XFree86 has been ported to Mac OS X but cannot be run at the same time as Aqua/Quartz. There is work going on to get X-Win apps running along side Aqua apps but I don't think anyone has succeeded yet. You can check out sites like (i think it might be .org) if you're really interested. I'm almost certain that there are versions of Python that have been ported to OS X. I figure given about 6 months the tools will be available to get most any *nix X-Win app running on OS X without too much trouble. Andy
