Hmm.. for 10.2 there was the Apple beta already, but you're right, a
much-updated system may have XD for historical reasons - but I'd get
rid of it asap :P. On the other hand, supposedly fink is installed,
too, but fink is incompatible across versions, you can't upgrade, you
must re-install, so it seems like a quite messed up system to me ;).
Ah, well, wait for Tiger, that should make fink obsolete even for
Bioconductor ... (hopefully...) ;)

Yes, it was more a hack than stable platform - but up to 10.1 you had
no choice ... I especially hated the WM - it didn't cooperate well with
other windows and in general copy/paste was a pain... I don't miss that
