They also haven't updated Notebook for Windows 7. I know that OS was in public beta for almost a year before being officially released. Maybe SmartTech isn't ignoring the Mac Community but has a deficient programming staff for new OS releases. What I know for sure is that it is frustrating.
The software release for Snow Leopard compatibility should be out really soon. Either within what remains of this week, or early next week. (Signed off yesterday, tested on Mac OS 10.5.8, 10.6.1 and 10.6.2.
Is there anyone running Snow Leopard and Notebook under Rosetta that is NOT having problems? I have not updated to SL yet even though I bought the upgrade the weekend it was released. I'd like to know if all the crashes are because people haven't set it up to run under Rosetta.
We bought the SL upgrade as well and it remains in the shrink wrap ONLY because Notebook has not been updated. Even the most close fisted companies AT LEAST issue a statement that they're working on a compatibility issue. That no statement has been issued at all would indicate that Smart Technologies are NOT working on it and/or don't really seem to care about the update, or worse, their customers.
But here's the kicker: For a company and a device that claims to be "cutting edge" (and the Smartboard is a wonderful tool) it is contradictory to be so old school when it comes to keeping people uninformed. And when the discussion gets to this point, Smartechologies needs to start thinking about very seriously about this. Do they want to sell more smartboards? Well, ANYONE with a new Mac will not buy one and others will not recommend them.
The smartboard is a peripheral device, not a proprietary item. It HAS TO play well with the "new" OS. That is, the "new" OS that's been out for 6 months now.
