My happiness is not dependent on anything you do.  However, I would prefer you use the singular 'I' rather than the plural 'we'...unless, of course, you are more than one person.

Let's examine it then shall we?

The post you responded to was:

Clearly he is saying that Intervocative, not the community, should listen to those wanting a mac version.  Asking that the community listen would be idiotic as the community has no say in that matter.

You responded to a statement about Intervocative with a 'we'.  In that context, it implies that 'we' is intervocative.  Basic English here...not that hard to understand.

Also, I have no idea what you intended.  I only know what you wrote.

Correct you had no idea what I intended. But YOU have seen me numerous times publicly state that I am NOT involved with IVS, so that should give you a hint. As you said that is not rocket science.

I don't believe you can find a single instance where I have siad anything other than i am a very active, perhaps the most active user. IVS has made a public comment in their FAQ's but people don't like to look for that information.

To be fair, I have been around almost as long as you have and I have NEVER read those FAQ's.  Never had the need to...was always able to find a friendly answer in the forums.

I am a Windows user.  I was taught Windows at Uni (well actually, it was introduced as version 2 during my time at Uni, and we quickly realized it would become the standard).  I, too, like you Skip, ignored the Mac.

That was until I purchased one for a project I was doing at the beginning of the year.  Guess who now hasn't used his virus prone Windows PC for a month?  Do yourself a favour, go buy a Mac (because it does take a few days to get use to the interface anomolies), and you'll realize that with the success of the iPod, Apple have set themselves up with the Front Row application to do the same with the Mac Mini when it comes to Home Theatre.  And don't tell me about Media Center - that buggy piece of software helps no-one.

So Skip, if you want to comment on the reasons why a Mac version shoud not be developed, make sure you are enlightened first.  Also, your comment on 1000 posts is because the software at this stage is relevant to Windows users only -- so why would a Mac only user place a post?  There is (sorry IV) better software available on the Mac, but there are some of us who use both OS's and would like to have one library, rather than maintaining 2 separate ones.

Matt:

You presume too much. I am very familiar with Macs going all the way back to Lisa. I well understand the strengths and weaknesses of each system. The salient point is that Aple owns a VERY small percentgae of the PC Market, that is for starters. Secondly, for years there have been many programs which have never been developed for other than PC's, IVS is not the first. And finally IVS has ONE programmer and he has his hands quite full, the likelihood of him STOPPING development of the program so he can write one to appease the small number of Mac users that are out there is infinitesimal. This not picking on Mac which I do toungue in cheek, this is simply REALITY. That is life in the Apple barrel get used to it.

Actually, at the moment Ken is not developing anything at all.

Oh, and I would like to know which dubious piece of software should be better than dvdp. I've been looking for ages for something similar...

What makes you think that? Just because we are locked up at the moment does not mean that ken is not hard at work.

Oh year, we know about that "success". Luckily the authorities in Scandinavia are moving to protect the consumers against it now, but way too late and too few countries.

By the way - Media Center helps me, so your statement is simply wrong. Yes, it sucks - but it sucks less than the alternatives.

Really.  Macs have never been more than 5% of the market, ever.

Why do you think they finally switched over to using x86 architecture instead of Motorola?  Now they can run the other 95% of the software base in native mode.

That's wrong, dude. The max market share was 33%. But that is a long long time ago

I've worked in this field since before the the first IBM PC came out.  I don't remember Apple ever having a 33% share of anything.  If you can, provide specifics - but I don't think you can.

I suspect you're talking about the Apple II, but that is not a PC.

The marketshare of Apple is 6,6% and they switched from IBM to Intel to be exact.
