Let's try not to turn this into a Mac flame war thread please.

There have actually been quite a large number of requests for a Mac MoI version - my general sense from the level of e-mail requests and such is that there would be a big enough marketplace to sustain a Mac version.

So I really wish that I could do one!

But the time and work investment involved is just too much for me - also I just do not personally have a background or any experience in Mac development so it would take a pretty substantial amount of time just to learn about it.

So it is just not feasible to do from a resources or amount of time involved type standpoint for my particular situation.


Olio - I'm not sure why you think having a niche product is such a bad thing. I have no problem with MoI being a kind of finely crafted "boutique" product that works really well for a somewhat smaller user base rather than selling a million copies.

I've done the "million copies" thing before when I was at Microsoft, and it's not really a specific goal of mine anymore, it tends to be rather cold and impersonal. It can be a lot more rewarding to connect with a somewhat smaller (not too small though! :) user base where I can be more involved with users and enable them to do some cool things.

Things are not set in stone though, it's not that I am 100% opposed to growing MoI in size and scope, but at the same time it is not some intense overriding goal which you seem to think it should be.

One of my #1 goals for producing MoI is to have fun doing a cool product.

- Michael

Olio,
I dont have something against you. I appreciate your input here and hope we can continue. Thanks for being a part of the forum for my benefit also.

Hello,

No you don't have to have a degree, they are mostly overrated IMO anyway. I was stating that you probably wouldn't be making these statements if you had any real world experience in such a thing, or solid evidence to back such a view.

If someone says my statements are "crazy" (your words) be ready to back up such a statement, usually with one of the two ways described above. Instead of countering with a shred of evidence or personal experience in such a thing you say you are being attacked personally, which is so far from the truth it is laughable. As I expected, you didn't have a problem with the statements I made (since you produced no countering information), just the "way" I said them. Next time you might think twice before you say someones statements are "crazy" without any backup and treat people with a little more courtesy. Over and out.

Ok guys, I think this is probably a good place to close this thread off for further replies just to avoid long drawn out arguments.
