That is an interesting statement. Are you seriously suggesting that users should only use Apple products on their Macs? What about Excel? Word? Photoshop? TurboTax? X-Plane? Are you aware that Apple specifically promotes the use of 3rd party applications on the Mac? They do encourage other people to develope for their hardware and software...

    Hi !

    I am afraid you misunderstood my previous reply : sorry if I have been unclear.

    I just wanted to say that relying on *poorly-written* third-party applications in a workflow was to be avoided.

    Of course, there are millions of excellent third-party Mac OS X applications available that can be used safely ! I know that Apple does its absolute best to help developers and am always glad to see new applications coming to the Mac.
