@BartArondson +1, but that should be /etc/hosts not /etc/hosts/.

comment How is the System Keychain secured in OS X?
Again, I can only surmise, but IMO it's actually not that different. The system itself obviously can get at the key, that's granted. I would assume that there's a system key treated similar to user keys. But now we're at the heart of your question…what provides first access?

comment Is it possible to use Back To My Mac DNS or routing information from the command line?
host doesn't work because it's using the DNS resolver, not the system resolver. ping doesn't work because BTTM uses IPv6. Try ping6 instead and you'll see it responds.

comment Is it possible to install Linux packages on OS X?
Like I said, you should seriously try it. It's easier to manage, it's easier to use, it's easier to fix and it's easier to contribute. I'm not trying to win. Just see for yourself, then pick the one you prefer.

@CajunLuke for one MacPorts will install duplicates of everything it needs. Don't want another bzip2? Too bad, you're getting one. Brew on the other hand leverages the existing system. I have 23 packages I like to install. With Macports that balloons with dependancies to 144 packages. With Homebrew, only 44. That's what I call "overly complex". You should seriously try Homebrew. You'll like it better.

comment Why doesn't iBooks save my place between the iPhone and iPad?
Upgrading to iCloud doesn't disable MobileMe's iDisk component. You can keep using iDisk until the EOL date even after converting to iCloud.
