Enterprising shareware authors are writing terrific software for Mac OS X, and this stuff is not only powerful and handsome, it’s exceptionally easy to use. Witness Alexandre Carlhian’s MP3 Sushi, which allows you to broadcast your MP3 collection over a local network. The program makes prodigious use of Apple’s Rendezvous technology, making the process of sharing your collection with others on your network, or finding available collections on your network, literally as easy as flipping a single switch. Seriously, it took me less than 2 minutes to get MP3 Sushi running, making it perhaps the simplest server software I’ve ever dealt with, either as administrator or client.
