I've heard that the BSD/Mach underpinnings of OS X are VERY suitable for emulating environments.

I would like to see more emulators optimized for this. Amiga, x86, atari, you name it ;)

I agree with Admiral! :D I want to see more Emulation and also Photoshop would be very nice. Does anybody have any idea when they are gonna port it? Im pretty sure they are already in the process of porting GoLive (Even though i have no idea what it's for) :p

Anyways Friday night (10-13-01) was a horrible night, this was rather a good night though. Anybody else feel this way?:confused:

Just a question, does anybody on here pay for software or just pirate it(seriously)?

i write software... so it bugs me when people don't pay for software... i want people to buy my software & not pirate it (cause if they pirate it i don't get money!!!!)

My top 10 (in no particular order):

* Macromedia Flash
* Photoshop
* InDesign
* MYOB Accounting
* Outlook (yes... i do run exchange)
* Chille!ASP (many unix/linux platforms... just no x86 yet)
* Ultradev (honestly... it kicks go live!)
* FaxStf (though i'm setting a linux box to run HylaFax come Wednesday)
* Fireworks
* Solitare!!!!

... this is of course on the basis that illustrator already runs in 10, so does ICQ, MSN... office is being released soon.. etc., etc., etc!

Yeah its kinda scares me too. I have so much faith in Cocoa that I want to do it for the rest of my life. (I realize its not going to be around forever but it will evolve). It pisses me off that people won't pay for software when they can just pirate it. I would think that alot of people "say" they would pay for it, but when it comes down to it they don't. This world is full of hypocrites anyway i think. Especially us hard working developers who work so hard, then people give away our work for free..:( Well just my thoughts...

I have always used WordPerfect on several platforms (DOS, Windows, Linux) and found WP much more reliable and powerful than its Redmont counterparts. I don't understand why Corel has dropped the Mac version. To see a carbonized version of WP 3.5 (or a new version!) would be a dream...

iMac 500
256MB RAM
MacOS X 10.1
MacOS 9.2
WP 3.5 in "Classic" mode

MYOB Accounting is out for OS X. Has been for some time. I use it every day at work (and yes I have paid for it) that accounting system is awesome. Plus - the X upgrade was FREE for registered users of the previous version. More upgrades to X should be like this. I don't know why so many folks cling to quicken when they drop Mac OS support on a whim every few years.

Things I'd like to have for X:
for work:
Palm Desktop
Photoshop
Quark
VSE Be Found

I hate launching classic for Palm Desktop especially.. just seems so silly. Fortunately all of the above are planned for X. :)

For home: just games, games, games, games.. and the ability to play all the windows media formats (audio and video). :cool:

Major Update:

•Adobe Photoshop and Illistrator have both already been ported, but are still in beta stages at this moment.
•Quark is being ported currently.
•Palm Desktop has also already been ported, but still in early beta stages.
•Adobe GoLive was ported ages ago, but for an odd reason they havn't released it yet.

Also: pay for your software. You just seem to get more out of it when you really deserve to.

Awww... c'mon. I don't know a single computer user that has never violated an end user agreement either by leeching it, not paying the shareware fee within 30 days, giving a copy to a friend, using the same copy on a second machine. The end user agreements are so limiting, it's ridiculous. I see this comment all the time on MacNN's boards. This board seems to be so much more honest about piracy - it's not the huge deal that BSA would like us to believe. So let's keep the forums here honest - and hopefully lecture free :)

Heh. Let's just say: I didn't say you had to pay for ALL of your software. :) I currently have a copy of Real Basic and Codewarrior on my desktop and well...I don't even have enough money to buy a Big Mac. :)

If you want to write something that would be very useful, you should write a good FAX program. I can't get FaxSTF to even work on my computer...:mad:
