It was extremely hard to develop for, and several vendors did just that -
and lost a huge amount of development investment. My favorite word pro Nisus
did.

I was at Now Software at the time, and our Mac devs wanted to jump in whole
hog on OpenDoc for Now Up-to-Date & Contact. We were stretched too thin on
the next gen NUD&C and Palm stuff to do it. And strangely enough, I don't
remember Apple being all that pushy about it either. They just seemed to be
happy we were still developing for the Mac.
