A Sourceforge for the Mac

Want Mac apps? Go to MacForge.

You like open source, and you prefer the Mac. You're in luck! I stumbled across a great site today - MacForge - which hosts over 50,000 open-source applications written for the blessed operating system, Mac OS X.

MacForge is not nearly as feature-rich as Sourceforge is, but if you're looking for a great repository of Mac-based applications, MacForge is a useful destination.
