> Back to the original question, we might also ask: Why was MacPorts created in 2002, if Fink already existed in 2000? I do not know. Perhaps the Apple engineers didn't like something about the architecture or culture of Fink and thought they could make something better.

As I understand it, Fink did not (and still does not) support
universal binaries, and Apple saw that feature coming. So, they
designed a system to support universal binaries.
