I was reading Brett Legree's
(link dead, sorry)
site and followed a link to Q10 because
it sounded interesting.
Imagine my surprise when the first text to hit my eyes was this:
Ehh? Folks don't usually go out of their way to tell you what their product WON'T run on, do they? I suspect some hard feelings here, maybe somone who has been mishandled by a few Linux or Mac Fanboys?
Or maybe (and wouldn't this be ironic) the developers are tired of hearing requests for Linux and Mac versions?
Well, whatever: this product is for Windows only and they want to be darn sure we Unixy cretins know that. So don't bug us about it, okay, because NO OTHER VERSION IS PLANNED.
Yeah, yeah, Linux and Mac market share are growing by leaps and bounds, but NO VERSION IS PLANNED. Got it? Yes, we know Vista sucks, even Microsoft execs know that, but you just aren't listening: NO LINUX OR MAC VERSION IS PLANNED.
Well, sure, yes, it is a free product so we really would have nothing to lose and everything to gain by suggesting that someone else might want to use that source and hack out a better.. I mean "diffferent" version, but sheesh, we can't do that because NO VERSION IS PLANNED.
And yes, we could do it ourselves, we know it isn't that hard, but we aren't going to dirty ourselves like that. Windows is Pure, and Mac and Linux are all yucky and demeaning and that's why NO VERSION IS PLANNED.
So: download our Windows version and run it under emulation if that's what you need to do because (and I'm only going to say this one more time) NO LINUX OR MAC VERSION IS PLANNED.
OK? Are we all on the same page now? Windows version, yes, Linux or Mac version, no.
It's really very simple..
Why are you all starting up your email? No, you are not going to send email requesting a Linux or Mac version, are you? It's not going to do any good - I already told you, NO VERSION IS PLANNED.
