Shareware CD-ROMs

It was no surprise that Fred on his path as an open source coder would stumble across the GNU community. He initiated the porting of the GNU development tools (binutils, gcc and the like) to the Amiga and BeOS platforms, allowing to compile open source POSIX software on these platforms. This project was called Geek Gadgets (GG) also known as Amiga Developer Environment (ADE), which could be compared with today's Cygwin effort for the Win32 platform. Fred was hired by Be (the makers of BeOS)...
