I miss an application like Nero or K3b: Toast Titanium is not quite in the same league, IMO.

I can't play some games: mainly Chessmaster 10, it doesn't even start in Parallels 3.0.

Visual C# is the only thing that's keeping me on windows. I can compile and run any application I write in it (as long as I don't use windows.forms) on Mac OS X, but I just can't do without all the features it has; autocomplete, intellisense, structuralizing your project and the assemblies you use.

MS is porting .Net to the mac... Here's hoping they release visual studio for it too (:P not bloody likely)

There's nothing I don't do in Mac OS X.

All the software I need is on this platform, and it's the same one used by my University department. I'm a coder with morals, so like the antithesis of Steve Ballmers Children ("You don't use google and you don't have an iPod.") I don't use .NET, and I don't have Visual Studio. (Which is pretty much required to do .NET [C#, VB#, J# etc.])

All my limited coding is as multiplatform as I can make it, in Java or in C(1 + "+" + "++"). (Unless I'm working on ancient platforms, on which I find BASIC is actually a fairly widespread standard.)

.NET on Mac is a VERY BAD THING.

Yes, it allows <Language># code to run on the Apple platform, but it's essentially designed as a kill-switch for the Apple computer. Think about it this way: .NET is released for Mac, so developers stop using TRUE multiplatform languages and use .NET instead. 3 Years down the line, IE style, Microsoft stop releasing .NET/mac. Suddenly developers are left with a platform that they don't know how to code for, so they either have to relearn programming, or switch to using Windows.

Yes, that's a cynical way of looking at it. It's also probably quite accurate.

Do you have OS X at all anywhere? :whistle:

naw, i deleted that ages ago! :thumbsup_anim:


i really cant seem to find any use for any os other than windows (i tested tons.... but they dont last that long) because i do allmost everything in wiindows ether way, so why not just adapt that 1% into windows and stop waisting 10+gb of diskspace? (ive tried to hardcore switch to opensource, and i do <3 bsd, but reallly.... it doesnt last because i can do it all in windows..... and idc that its "the big evil coperation" or whatever ahhaha)

but long story short, nope i dont ;) ya caught me :whistle:

I use MacOS X to every thing you think. i only have native windows installed because of the squarehead of the family, and for my Sony Ericsson W800i cell phone flashing.

For PlC (Programmable Logic Controler) SDK I'm actually using CodeWeavers solution to emulate Windows.
For PLC (same as up) Emulator I'm using CodeWeavers solution too.
For VisuAlg, CircuitMaker, MultiSim, and other programs that use in my Technical Graduation I'm using CodeWeavers solutions too.

Conclusion. Let make Apple include an "Rosetta" to emulate Windows Environment, and Make Windows Applications run under MacOS x =D

- QE and CI doesnt work on my Radeon X1600 (hah... compiz/berly too ;P)
- also TV Card
- games (Lineage II)
- theres no official polish translation of OSX, and unofficial is... ugly; we have a war - war of better words meaning (ie. we dont have folders, we have briefcase or binder - in polish of course ;P. its hard to explain...).

Suddenly developers are left with a platform that they don't know how to code for, so they either have to relearn programming, or switch to using Windows.

.Net isn't some insidious plan to kill the Mac. The open source Mono runtime runs many .Net apps, and Microsoft can't do anything to legally shut them down. If the situation DOES play out as you expect, Apple will just throw some of their resources behind Mono and abandon .Net.

Right now, if you develop an app for Mono, it's very rare that it won't work on .Net. The other way isn't so bulletproof yet, but they're getting better all the time.

Sure, it comes straight out of Microsoft, who has crammed some of the worst innovation stifling useless {censored} down our throats throughout its history. But .Net is a rare one from them; it's a good idea.

All the software I need is on this platform, and it's the same one used by my University department. I'm a coder with morals, so like the antithesis of Steve Ballmers Children ("You don't use google and you don't have an iPod.") I don't use .NET, and I don't have Visual Studio. (Which is pretty much required to do .NET [C#, VB#, J# etc.])

...I don't understand where morals come into coding.... You kind of lost me there. But you don't need Visual Studio to develop C#. Most Mono C# developers just use what most coders have used since the beginning; a simple text editor. Visual Studio just has features that make coding and debugging RIDICULOUSLY easy.


There is a plugin to make XCode work with C#/Mono. It's just very cumbersome right now because of the differences in how .Net and Xcode work, and it doesn't have a debugger.

Most people who critisize the .Net framework haven't ever actually used it, many of the harshest critics haven't even heard anything about it other than it comes from microsoft (originally).

In OSX I can't play GTA San Andreas, run keygens, update keys and emulators in my sat receiver, authoring video DVD with serious authoring programs like Scenarist, run photographic remapping program RectFish, ecc.

Try to cram many things into one app. In other words: Firefox syndrome. Took me ages to get out of that one.. the nearest I have to it now is quicksilver, but I only use that for applaunching, none of the other odd features.

It sounds sad, but I don't game now that I have a mac at all anymore, not because its hard (I have bootcamp installed fine), just I don't feel like it. I used to play a bit of AoE or SimCity, but not at all anymore. Perhaps I've just grown up a bit.. that or its the Wii I now own...
