Yes, tRev is just an example, I fully understand that it may well not make
any business sense for it to come in a Linux flavor. The point however
where this does become an issue for RunRev itself is when, after quite a few
of these entirely reasonable choices by the individuals concerned, the
package that you are getting starts to vary a lot in functionality from one
OS to the other. And that is the main reason I didn't buy the great
megapack, which was indeed superb value were you on Windows, too many things
either of interest, but not for Linux, or for Linux, but not of interest.
They definitely don't have to provide identical solutions. But there does
need to be some thought about maintaining equivalence when not identity,
which is why in this example I suggested plugins for a couple of the
lightweight programming editors people use in Linux. Kate would be another
possibility. There should be an alternative programming editor, one of the
common Linux ones, to maintain parity. As a forinstance.
I must say that Rev has always been very fair and pleasant to deal with, and
for what I use it for, its just fine. I can work around the gaps and
omissions well enough. And support from the community has always been
outstanding. I was writing quite bluntly, but not in anger, rather in the
spirit in which one says to one's bright teenage son, look, you are all set
for a B. Just stop sitting in front of the TV for a few weeks, and you will
get an A Now, you say to him, its going off, now.
Obviously they have quite a bit on their minds right at the moment though
