Fairly hacked off to receive and advert for THIS on my Facebook page:


mainly because when you get to the webpage it:

1. Assumes that you are running Microsoft Windows,

and, as an after-thought,

2. Offers a Macintosh version.

Some of us are neither, and resent this kind of 'push' that makes all 
sorts of
unwarranted assumptions about what we run on our computers, why we run it,
and what we do with it.

Where do these people live? In the same stupid, limited world where 90% of
school teachers and school systems dwell; the place where every square peg
must be beaten and hammered to fit into a round hole.

I sometimes wonder why LiveCode don't take advantage of that and present 
themselves as
the "anti-programmer's programming suite", the "un-code" the 
there should be a lot of uptake.


P.S. I also use my computer to iron my socks.
