What's wrong with Stuffit
Authored by: unresort on Oct 01, '05 01:24:13AM

i am gonna have to call bullsh*t on this comment. i mean, seriously, do you shun all proprietary formats for fear that you won't be able to open something 5-6 years down the line? that's just stupid. so, you don't save anything from Photoshop as a .psd? i guess .ai files are out too. what about .doc files? .toast?

dude, i think the real issue is WHAT are you going to want to open again say, 5 years from now?

the format is legit and it works, don't trash it just because you can. it makes you seem petty.

C'mon. Think thoroughly about this what you just wrote again... and no, I am not the only one who disagree with you.

I, for one, would like those formats to be open too. If .doc were open, I could seamlessly use it in OpenOffice. .ai and .psd files as well, would be great if those were open so caomptibility with the Gimp could be ensured.

Stuffit's got two options, just like anyone else competing with open source products: improve your products, or corner the market in such a way you're trapping people.

Microsoft seems to have chosen the latter...heh.
