    Default A *nix version

    Many, many years ago NoF ran on the Apple Mac platform. This was in the days when MacOS was a proprietory OS with a declining market share. Today the scenario is very different. The Mac OS has a unix base - FreeBSD and a growing market share. Given that once the code base was developed for one *nix variant, it would be relatively trivial to port it to other variants - Linux, SunOS, et al. This would give NoF an opportunity to grow its user base among those who do not and will not use windows.

    Think about it.

    Default NetObjects Fusion for Mac

    Agreed. NetObjects Fusion 3 was the last Mac version. We believe there is a market opportunity and think NetObjects Fusion compares favorably with existing applications like Freeway and RapidWeaver. We're evaluating the scope of work; a Mac version is in our long term plan.

    Steve,

    If you do a Mac version someday, a Linux version should be possible as well... given the Unix roots of both.

    Oooh A linux version please! NOF is my last use of Windows and is hanging on in a virtual XP. Would love to be able to integrate NOF with all my other Linux tools instead of having to flip between OS.

    I have used NOF since 7 12 years I changed over to mac with Parallels installed and gave up on it as it was slowing things down too much. Since then I have been running NOF 11 on my Dell XPS with Windows 7. However having owned and enjoyed the iPhone and iPad decided to try another Mac. I have made the decision to keep the Dell for the sole purpose of running NOF 11 on it to build and edit my websites. I am wishing and hoping one day soon i will read somewhere that NOF decides to build their software for Mac again. Please please!!!!

    I have to agree about the desirability of a Mac version.

    However, I must say I don't really have a problem running NOF on Windows 7 on my Mac under VMWare Fusion. I use the share option for directories which allows me to use the best tools from Mac and Windows. Not exactly fluent but it works.

    on my Mac with Bootcamp, which is rather pain to keep switching from Mac to Windows I hate my Windows side of things. Please NetObjects do the right thing and build your software for the Mac :-(
