Until we at least have a Beta of L4Mac, then we let them have a couple of developers back. All in favor?

Terry,

There are two different teams of developers working on Windows and Mac products. Stopping Windows won't add any developers to the Mac team.

Spending more money on Logos resources might Wink

I think I read somewhere that they recently moved a couple of developers who were proficient in both platforms from the Windows group to the Mac group.

From what I understand, the development of the two platforms are so closely integrated that suspending Windows development would slow down Mac development instead of speeding it up.

Chris I know and the chances of the people who normally work on Windows being good enough to program for the Mac is pretty slim, but at least they could run get the Mac guys Coffee and donuts. I am in a fairly whimsical mood today, and was just looking forward to the day when I can remove bootcamp from my machine.

Terry,

It is hard to run for coffee when you are covered in bubble wrap. But with the long extension cord you could make it right there.

I'm pretty sure all the Mac guys are developing on Mac machines.

What would be interesting to know is how many of the Windows developers are also developing on Mac machines.

I'm wondering just how many more resources could have been completed, and how much farther along Logos 4 would be if they wouldn't have decided to develop for the Mac.  Logos began as a windows application. Where is the thankfullness from the Mac camp? Are Mac users even Christian?

Hmmmm....  Let's see....  Let's ask Logos to stop development on the OS that 90% market [Windows] share for full steam development on the OS that has 5% market share [Mac]....  Ummm yeah that's a great business plan and I'm sure all those Windows Logos users will be peachy about that deal.  Especially because they outnumber Mac users 18 to 1 and they bought an OS that has had Logos running fine from the jump...

Ummm not so much...  Might be more expedient to get a PC and install Logos 4 on it until the Mac version gets even close to speed.  After all you get all versions of L4 when you purchase one.  Hey you might even come to realize that there is a reason why Mac only has 5% market share....  Other than being pretty and over priced they just don't cut it....Just sayin'

Just in case it wasn't clear my vote was a no for this nervy proposol....

Logos 5, Windows & Android perfect together....

Given the topic, people are being really nice on this thread.  I know it was all said in fun, but pitting pc's against apples like this can often erupt in flames. Lightning

But just to vote, I mostly like my apples coated in apple dip (cream cheese and brown sugar), mmmmm.  Unless we are taking a break for apples and apple dip, I vote for continued development of pc version.

Perhaps we should suggest that the number a developers should reflect the ratio of PC's to Mac's: 9 PC developers for every 1 Mac Developer. Big Smile

Bob has answered before, "None." Two different teams.

Seems like a pretty harsh statement to make, since we aren't supposed to judge... what's going on in your life?

Neither a Mac nor a PC (tech agnostic, if you will)... just want the most affordable/best product I can get for the things I use computers for.

Grace & Peace,

Tech pundits predicting Macs will morph into PCs?

Improvements made to the Mac so far include:

Dumped the Motorola CPU - it couldn't run Windows.
Added color video - so you can see the 4 color Windows logo
Added SuperDisk drives capable of reading PC floppies
Separated the monitor & computer - like a PC
Added USB, IDE, PCI - like PCs have
Dumped the MacOS for an X-based operating system
BootCamp & Parallels so you can run Windows on it.
Now running Intel based chips so you can boot Windows on it.
Would it be easier just to buy a PC?    WooHoo!

Sorry about the bold reply.  The forum app. made me do it. I don't use smileys, I find them too cutsey. Read what you want to into my comments. I just wish that the Mac fans wouldn't be so insufferable. I guess they would like eveyone to be a miserable as they are.
