because maybe people may get their work done with their software and who's excited about that? but perhaps they make their life a little easier

Ja. Stimmt. You've opened my eyes to this a bit.

I can see how it could be frustrating to work so hard to help people in practical situations, but not get nearly as much public attention as Disco. It doesn't justify coming down hard on the Disco developers, but it's easier to understand this other perspective.

I doubt creating Disco was easy, though. Apple's Disc Burning framework does a lot of the low-level stuff, but Disco has some features not implemented by Apple, and writing all of the drawing and animation code takes time too.

It puts additional pressure on developers, though, because they not only have to make something useful, but possibly make it fun to use as well. Cha-Ching seems like it might a good example of that, though I haven't used it yet.

There's room for many different kinds of app on the Mac.

sorry for my bad english, that was hard

Nein, nein. Es ist gute. Much better than my Deutsch anyway.
