As it relates to developing a MAC solution..
As a group we would like to do it however there are some serious hurdles to overcome..
1. Debian Linux != MACOS - There a tons of differences from a linux perspective where we today we can't just compile on Mac and we get it for free
Many of us can see the MAC as being a very nice computer, but the cost of the MAC vs PC is why I have never went the way of a MAC. I can have 2 PC's to every 1 MAC dollar wise.
I sold a single widget to a friend who has a MAC. He has no wings and when he uses the front panel encoder wheels with the mouse, there are problems getting them to work correctly. So unless you have a program wing, your pretty much SOL on the MAC.
High End has their plate full of unfinished and incomplete projects that need their attention way before they worry about another operating system for the MAC.
Let's see them finish the fixture builder.
How about a remote focus application for Windows XP/Vista? Windows 7 for HOG 3PC and for the consoles?
Who cares about an Iphone App? I am with Sprint and cannot use an Iphone anyway. I have a blackberry.
How about fixing the bugs we have in the consoles operating system before creating new features and more stuff to trouble shoot?
How about making the Axon work like it should even 95% of the time?
Maybe if High End would stop wasting money manufacturing the Studio Color 575 fixture(dead horse that knowone is buying) there would be resources available to finish some projects. Oh and we really needed another 100lb mirror fixture again......NOT!
LED fixtures with media servers built in them is another brilliant waste of time and money that could be better used.

Doesn't make much sense when the consoles are Linux and Windows based, plus you cover a larger number of users with Windows versions, especially when you can run the Windows versions on Mac.

Why would you want to run software in emulation when you can run it native.
In my experience as a designer, the majority of my peers run a Mac, not a PC.
A native Mac version would be appreciated by those of us who use a Mac.
I dont see this as a waste of resources but an additional income stream for High End and also the support of a large number of users.

You would think it would be a minor change to port it over to linux. But really how many users that would want it on linux don't already have a pc they can run it on. I would rather they spend time working on bug fixes and enhancements.

I use it in Parallels all the time. That's how I do my remote focus. Hook up the router, choose the network, open Parallels and go for it. Works like a charm. I've never even setup bootcamp because I don't need the horsepower as I only have 2 XP programs left (Wyg and Hog3PC). Everything else, I keep running in my Mac environment and just switch over as needed.

Wow! Sure it's great idea to run HOG PC on MAC OS. I use MacBook Pro and run HOG PC using Bootcamp with Windows XP. But... if Wholehog consoles run under Windows, what about showfiles compartability? Would it be possible to download showfiles created on HOG PC under MAC OS to any Wholehog console? MAC use different files system that Windows.

I have to disagree with you here. The Studio Color is a definite workhorse. We own quite a few (and just purchased more). Show me another fixture that does color mixing, runs on 110v and is convection cooled (this is the reason we have VL1000's, Studio Colors and Studio Spot CMY Zooms). We had to have NO FANS.
