Flightcomm And Flight Tracker Question

Wed Jul 07, 2004 1:14 am

hi everyone,

i have seen that some of you guys (and girls for that matter), use this software to track flights which i would really love to be able to do, but i run a mac. are there any flight tracking products out there that i can run on os x? i have looked but to no avail, so am not terribly hopeful but if anyone knows i am sure i am in the right place to ask the question.

cheers,
ian

My suggestion is to call Dell and purchase a Dimension destop and upgrade to XP Professional. No offense but this world runs on Windows. Big grin

i know the world runs on windows but i don't think this is the place to have a debate over operating systems. thanks, but no thanks, apple keep me happy.

"but no thanks, apple keep me happy."

... unless, of course, you are trying to purchase software, eh? It is a Ferrari for which you can not buy gas.  Big grin

yeah i know, that is the one frustrating thing about having a mac, but having a mac makes up for it ten fold. part of it also lies with the makers of software. just because apple don't have a decent market share of their units, it's natural that software manafacturers won't bother to invest time and money making something for an operating system that in percentage fewer people use. but i 'switched' to a mac knowing nothing about them, not even knowing the differences... and it took only a small amount of time to discover that the only hard thing about using a mac is going back to the start, and forgetting a lot of the windows stuff you pick up. they are so easy to use it makes windows feel like a marathon, and my partner is in design, and windows are crap at that. i agree with you though, now what did i say earlier??

That's what i was going to suggest, Virtual PC. I got it for my imac and it runs not too badly. I agree Macs do work 'better' just the lack of software for its native use is pants!
