Hi Dick,


I've been struggling through the previous articles and jumping through the hoops to port ColdFusion to my Mac. This newest article is a great relief.


I purchased UltraDev about 3 years ago only to discover that its powers were largely unsupported on the Mac. Since then I've been angry at Macromedia for ripping me off by marketing ahead of the real world. It cost me hundreds of dollars and countless hours of hair pulling only to finally uncover the fact that nothing would work unless I was using a Windows machine (virtually unthinkable for a creative director). Macromedia eventually came around with its MX packages for OSX and the recent introduction of JRun4 and ColdFusionMX for the Mac.


Your efforts to remedy the problem are greatly appreciated. I believe your articles to port into OSX's Darwin core helped Macromedia feel the heat from the rest of us.
