Comment on "The Wrong Way for the Right Reasons"
by Dan Price — Nov 20
Andrs I agree, but I don't think the lack of big Mac-only developers is something we really need to lament. With a few exceptions, most of the big software packages I've used on Windows have tended to deeply flawed, buggy, or compromised by horrible UIs.

By contrast, the host of independent developers on the Mac continue to produce great, inexpensive, cost-effective apps that actually fulfill a need. Customer support tends to be far better too and it's always nice to deal with the developers direct, rather than the PR department of some faceless conglomerate.

Maybe it's the superior development tools or the attitude of Mac users, but the lack of big names producing Mac software has not hurt the platform one bit - quite the opposite in fact.
