The Mac has been around for 33 years and nothing gets folks riled up like a Mac vs. PC debate . These forums are a great resource for users productively and creatively helping one another, but this is the saltiest thread I’ve seen!
Let’s keep things civil here.
We at Tumult like to hear from users, and in regards to a PC version, it is helpful to gauge interest by volume and also hearing stories on why you may need a windows version. We understand not everyone has the same circumstances that led them to their computing platform; the reasons here are technical, cost, convenience, personal, managerial-mandate, and many others that we find interesting. We don’t like market blindspots, and encourage requests like this thread.
There has been talk on how we might best approach new versions and new platforms (or not approach them!). I appreciate the advice and thought experiments, but pricing and release is probably better handled by us with our market visibility and any future research.
I have often wondered if some of the fuel is a fear of creative tooling companies losing their focus on the creative parts, and instead being run by marketing or business folks. This seems to happen in the industry from time to time (cough Adobe cough). I can relate that a Windows version, which by definition is a lot of work and no new features, could be a sign of such an unfortunate shift. “The first step in avoiding a trap is knowing of its existence!” Our focus is increasing creative capabilities of users, I never want that to change.
Anyways, I’ll just reference my previous response here, since it covers our current thinking on the topic:
I won’t close this thread, but let’s keep it on the “here’s my request and why” wavelength instead of arguing about someone’s computing choice or how Tumult will or won’t go about doing it.
Thanks, and back to work!
