The menu is strictly an OS X service, so there would have to be a lot of code-branching for each platform, and lots of specialized handlers to accomodate similar functionality on non-Mac machines. I was probably a little presumptuous, forgetting that some folks develop only for their own use.

Not presumptuous.

From your previous message I got the impression that the number of home-brewers on the list is relatively small.

I'm wondering: home-brewers / professional developers on the list < 1? < 0.1?

By home-brewers I mean amateurs developing for their own use.

Home-brewers don't normally work cross-platform. Professional developers usually do, I suppose.

Is LC the preferred tool for non-pros developing for their own use? If not then what is?

Cheers,

Tim
