I'm actually interested in the experience of both of you.
I have a end-2009 MacBook Pro 13, running Snow Leopard, and until a month
ago I have been using it like Tennessee, through MacPort.
Recently I replaced the hard-disk, restoring the content from my backup,
and since than the compiler does not work anymore (it's not in the path,
and it always fails to run, even if called by XCode - also restored by the
backup). I cannot install the new XCode unless I update the operative
system to a recent version.
So now I'm not sure about what to do, whether to update my OSX or to
install an Ubuntu flavored distribution.
