LaTeX on Mac OS X

LaTeX lion

For my work I use LaTeX on a Mac. My toolbox contains the following software, designed for Mac OS:

XƎTeX, fontspec, Bibdesk and TeXShop plus the standard LaTeX engine and packages come nicely packed and ready to install in the fabulous MacTeX distribution.

All the above are licensed as free and open source software, which means that their code is publicly available to the community of users and can be freely adapted, modified and redistributed under the terms of the license.
