LOL, 2 years on, and still no Mac Client or even a 'whiff' of one. "Perhaps there will be an open beta..." Space-X will land men on Mars before you see a Mac Client from this company. Conrad, you should go work for the White House as the press secretary.

Sir,

"It would be better" if this thread contained "meaningful information" about an upcoming Mac client. In lieu of that, what you should have said is, "we are working on it," nothing more- especially if you have no timeline and no real information. Less is more here. The sarcastic sideline commentary, argumentative discourse and tone, has no place here. This is customer relations 101 stuff. IT support is first and foremost, customer service. All you have done here is anger a potential customer to the point that no sale will happen. You didn't benefit me, and you didn't benefit the company you represent.

And you did it publicly.

Sir,

I'm going to make two points.

First, arguing with (potential) customers, is a no-win scenario- just don't do it. At this point, I would not purchase this software (1000's of dollars) simply because of the conversation that I have witnessed/"partaken in", here. So even if you are right/correct/justified, you have lost a sale. While you might not care about that, the owner(s) does/should. Being right/correct/justified, doesn't make you productive. What was your goal with this conversation?

Second, the software is at version 6.5- with no Mac client. Tells me everything I need to know about the level of importance it has.

While not explicitly saying, verbatim, a Mac Client is "not important", this more than implies the same given the context of the conversation, and the time that has past from the original posted query.

RU should get somebody that isn't a smart*ss to respond to these posts/questions. The tone is unprofessional, cringe-worthy, and a complete turn off to anyone that would be serious about spending several thousand dollars on software. I would not tolerate this from any kind of tech support I would be working with as a customer.

No Mac client is a non-starter for anyone serious about using this software as an MSP. If RU is serious about becoming mainstream, it needs buy-in from the MSP market segment. Telling us that a Mac client is "not important", goes a long way to demonstrate how out of touch this company is with the demands of consumers in a large market segment.

Don't bother to delete this, I plan to send a copy to the CEO via email anyway- hopefully it's not the person responding here.
