A Heavyweight Named XCode

October 03, 2007

Today I had to upgrade Apple's XCode to the current version 2.4.1, because the old XCode 2.2 that came with my OSX install CDs resulted in errors with some apps (ffmpeg, in my case). The XCode installation package weighs in at 924 Megabytes, just a little short of one Gigabyte. Slim is not one of the words I would use for that...

And all that just to install Macports, my favorite tool to bring the most powerful Unix tools to OSX.

At least their download servers are pretty darn fast -- that eases the pain: XCode Download Speed

I am just wondering: What do people do with a slow internet connection or a small harddrive?
