Disappointing for us MAC users. Today I downloaded the so called "stand alone client" for xsquawkbox and guess what....I need fracking Parallels to even open it up after download. I figured that you would consider the whole community as you go forward with this but NO....As always MAC users are being discriminated against. It just shows lack of vision, commitment, and just plain laziness. This was supposedly years in the planning. In that timeframe.... Nobody thought about soliciting volunteers, hiring (for lack of a better term at this time)a MAC expert that could possibly help with coding, integration so that all of us could enjoy VATSIM? I will tell you this. If you don't start getting with the times, Pilot Edge will displace you as a network, at least in the US. Now ....after this rant if someone has a workaround for this let me know. You have to forgive me but since the initial email almost 2 weeks ago I was so looking forward to this and BOOM; felt like a door shut right in your face.
