Skim Rocks

Stumbled across Skim, an open source PDF reader for OS X. It crushes Preview. It has a good full screen mode, supports annotations/notes, and has a few other nifties. As the author puts it, "Skim is designed to help you read and annotate scientific papers in PDF. Skim includes many features and has a great user interface. Stop printing and start skimming."

via Sylvain -- Bwana is nice (for you OS X folks out there). Need to make a Quicksliver plugin for it now.

Eclipse on OS X and Nasty Fonts

Has anyone succeded in making Eclipse look good on a Powerbook? I cannot find a font that the anti-aliasing doesn't reduce to fuzzy niblets, and cannot find a way to turn off anti-aliasing. OTOH, the latest 2.X release on OS X is finally fast enough to not be painful for that reason.
