It'll make a superb development platform, but there's one more thing... being able to make a Carbonized standalone with MetaCard is HUGE right now. There's such a lack of applications available for OS X, any app that's carbonized will get a large following from people who have "upgraded" to the beta (at least, that's in a hypothetical, optimistic world! :) I've been waiting to purchase the OS X beta until I can run my good ol' MetaCard in it... releasing the carbonized engine would get me going releasing all sorts of programs, and give everyone in the MetaCard community a big boost in the credentials department. Thanks for getting this done, and here's to getting this public testing started ASAP! (tomorrow I place the order for OS X!) > Regards, > Scott > > > Brian -- Karl Becker, KB Productions | Featuring Tiger's Eye Casino, http://www.karlbecker.com | The Fishin' Hole, and New Tricks | | Also featuring un-cut writings of Karl!
