Nano. Not a very original name, but the story behind the car is quite
fascinating. Here is an interview with Ratan Tata about how the
project was initiated and how the design evolved.


I bring this up to compare and contrast with the XO project.

PC to Mac port


We are planning to port our PC-based application to the Mac. The target audience includes SOHO (Small Office/Home Office) users as well as corporate Mac users.

If you’re a Mac user, I’d appreciate hearing rants and raves about software you’ve used that was originally written for the PC. What worked well? What drove you crazy?
