wiki:kencu

Ken has been programming Apple computers since 1986. Having lived through the heyday of 68000-series systems, then PPC MacOS 8.5 to 9.2, then the original MacOSX systems, Ken has an Apple computer currently running almost every MacOS version that there is.

Ken has been instrumental in helping to keep up and extend the robust support MacPorts exhibits for older systems -- many ports run all the way back to MacOSX 10.4 Tiger!
