Encore DVD has NEVER been on a Mac before, nor has Premiere Pro. They are indeed new to the Mac and, as such, they have stuck their necks out -- doing so well in advance of a 90 day period.

Companies stick their necks out all the time, Eric. The fact that Autodesk does not is their way and arguing that all these companies are the same, and act the same, is purely preposterous.

In fairness, none are sainted and each have killed products along the way. Apple is the worst offender in this regard and I have owned MANY tools that cost me a fortune over the years that died an ugly death at the hands of Apple corporate decision-making. Adobe has killed a few of its own tools along the way.

But all of these things considered, Autodesk seems to have little concern for public opinion -- while both Apple and Adobe feed on it -- and that is okay when your stock values are up. But one day, the worm turns and then you wish that you had more loyalty in the customer base -- and a broader one at that.

Just my opinion,

Ron Lindeboom
