Is there really no way to persuade Mike to have Qimage also written for Mac OS?
I would be ready to buy a new version for Mac OS

Yeah, you and the ~200 other people who want Qimage on the Mac!  If you could get all 200 together and each pay $1500 in advance for me to take the 1-2 years to develop it and put everything else on hold, you might get my attention.  There was a petition a few years ago to get Qimage on the Mac.  It was distributed to every online forum available so that people could sign this petition.  It is still open today, 3 years later, and has gathered less than 250 signatures.  That gives you an indication of how many Qimage users are really switching to a Mac, and even gives you a feel for how many Mac users there are out there.  Not many!  I would never see any real return on that investment and would go bankrupt trying.

Mike

Here's the solution for the Mac users:  Go to Wal-Mart.  Buy the $300 Toshiba Windows 7 laptop they have currently on special.  (I did.)  Install Qimage.  Print stuff.

Mike-

I am getting ready to do the REAL full install.  I have a question about the whole admin thing.

Vista (or maybe Toshiba) created some bogus Administrator with a password you could not change.  Or, so they thought.  I used a Unix boot disk with a utility that let you delete/change/create one with new password and all fell into place.

Is WIN 7 doing this same Kabuki dance?? Huh
