    Two words - due dilligence.



    It's not odd for a developer that has no experience in the Mac market. Plenty of companies farm out the Mac development of their products. Companies like Software MacKiev have made a good living out of the practice.



    And the developer in question has voluntarily come to a Mac discussion board trying to explain to fans what went wrong. That is to be commended.



    It's simplistic and condescending posts like yours that make developers think the Mac market isn't worth the trouble.

    They farm out just about everything.

    This thread is entertaining.



    It's true that these developers calling it quits on trying to port their product to OSX is pretty rediculous... my church runs BootCamp on their MBs just so they can use it.



    But the software is solid. I've used it for years and it does what it's supposed to, and does it wonderfully. Beats the pants off of PP or Keynote for any sort of presentation that needs to be fluid and flexible.
