  • One of my main problems with it is the Mac-only nature.

    I mean, it's all well and good people can write Mac applications, but personally I've always preferred doing things in a cross-platform way.

    Of course, the Camelbones guys disagree and think cross-platform Perl desktop apps are non-ideal, and that what I really want to be writing is Mac-specific ones.

    Which I guess makes some sense if you use a Mac. :)
    • The #1 reason I do not use Firefox as my everyday browser is because it is cross-platform, which has many negative effects on the final product.

      If it is not a native Mac app, with a native Mac UI, then it is going to be a bad app on the Mac. It's as simple as that (though the reasons why can be complex).

      • It's now a native mac app. Try it. Let me know how it goes for you.
        • And by native, I mean it doesn't even shell out any more. It calls into the mac DVD creation API. Which is actually kinda cool for a perl app.
