I use Fetch a lot unfortunately. Basically It is still simplistic and under
featured and clunky - by that I don't mean that you can't accomplish transfers,
but rather that it is not an intuitive GUI.
In 4.0b7 there are actually a bunch of things I don't know how to use, but no way
to simply browse a file heirarchy and see both machines at once as in others
(i.e..harder to teach to non-geeks)
We shouldn't give up the goal of comparable support for FTP and X-Win across
platforms because users come in all stripes wheather they are on PCs or MACs.
Regardless, the things they need to do are always similar and if inteligent use
of the main cluster is what we are preaching, $$$$ should be allocated
Exodus may not be cheap but it is the best one I've found; good enough for CIT to
have deployed it internally, I think in the library, and is being used in the
sciences where desktop Macs are used to manage 'NIX resources.
It would also be wise to stay with vendors active in making versions of their
products for osX - esp. since programs are sometimes limited when running under
"classic" inside osX (as opposed to native).
