As a new Mac convert (literally, this week) I must say there is an issue that really saddens me and I want to rant about it here for a sec and get feedback from others who have been similarly frustrated. So, I get the new macbook set up and running and the first thing my wife is excited to do with it is plan our new kitchen. So she goes to the Ikea website because we *really* wanted to use Ikea for our new kitchen and she goes to download their kitchen planner software. No dice. DOESN'T WORK ON MAC. No problem, I say. All we'd need is virtualization software, or dual-boot and an XP license. Her eyes glaze over. "I thought this was supposed to just work!" I share her frustration. So I got to Lowe's website and THEIR kitchen planner. No dice. Only PC. No Mac. Even though it uses Flash, their download page explicitly states that it won't work on a Mac. So I go to the Kohler website (plumbing) and try to play with their bathroom designer. No dice. Same story. Now I know you're all going to go point out Mac-specific software that will let you do kitchen design, etc. I KNOW it exists. But this is what PC folks mean when they point out the relative lack of Mac software. If you grab your mac and try to run something on it that your wife wants (something SPECIFIC) or your parents send you on a CD, there's a very VERY good chance it won't work. I wanted the IKEA planner very specifically because I can reference the very parts and cabinets THEY sell. Doesn't do me as much good that there is *some* kitchen software for the mac. Am I back in the Commodore Amiga days?
