RR Competition?

Unless I am missing something, this is Mac only.  Who wants to create 
apps that are Mac only, when the majority of the market out there is 
still Windows?

Don't get me wrong, I love my Mac, insist on my apps being available on 
Mac OS 9 and OS X and wouldn't consider designing/programming my apps 
on a Windows machine.  It's just that the ability to create 
crossplatform apps is a crucial part of what I need and I think that's 
true of others, as well.

Even if there were no Revolution out there, I wouldn't even consider 
this until they have at least a Windows player. And then, I would need 
to see that Windows player actually WORK with my stacks (apropos of the 
text line-up problems reported here and elsewhere when apps made for 
one platform are ported to the other).  If it looks pretty on Mac and I 
have no way to make it look pretty in Win player then it's dead in the 

My 2 pfennings.
