None of the other operating systems have it and branching the engine code to support a single OS is probably a lot of work. It wouldn't make our jobs any easier either, since only apps built for Macs would work with it.
Now I'm curious again. I suppose the definition of "our jobs," as above, has changed on the LC list. Is the LC list mostly comprised of developers writing mobile apps these days?
Thanks also to Bob, for the extensive reply. I hope you didn't write all that code just for me!
