    Nikon sent me a notice saying that Capture NX is incompatible with Mac
    OS X 10.5 Leopard. They are working on a fix, but you should not use
    Capture NX because it can corrupt files when saving them. Good ol'
    Nikon. Why can't they just save files the way everyone else does?

    Typical Mac Fanboy: Apple yet again makes arbitrary and non-backward
    compatible changes to hardware or OS and users blame everyone but Apple.
    Well, anyone dumb enough to pay what Apple charges for low end Intel
    hardware deserves what they get.

    Nobody but Nikon seems to be having this problem. Nikon seems to have
    rather frequent compatibility problems with its software no matter what
    OS it is running on. I might point out that for several months Capture
    NX was not compatible with Vista, either.

    Anybody who wastes their money for cheap hardware to run Windows, in
    particular Vista, is a loser.

    Backwards compatibility is what made Microsoft windows the DOG it is today.
    You should applaud Apple for their forward thinking in making progress in
    their OS.

    Incidentally I use Windows.

    Interpreted by a fellow Aussie who understands his lingo, Pete means...

    "WTF? I don't have any problems with my unbalanced RAM that only cost me $80
    a gig. The no name motherboard I got for $60 off eBay doesn't crash on my
    pirate software either... What's all this crap about Vista? What's Vista
    anyway? I always go for Panos, those Vistas are way too hard to make
    anyway."

    If there are three levels of intelligence with the highest 1, Pete will go
    looking for the Forth every time!

    Apple made a decision not to release specs on the software too late
    for a lot of companies to respond, a lot of printer drivers and
    scanners are having problems with 10.5, not just Nikon. Nikon did push
    software development onto NIK software, a small company so that
    probably figures into the equation too. I do find it humerous that
    when Apple brings out an OS rewrite, no one gets on them about
    releasing the code too late, it is an Apple problem not Nikon.

    Not true. There have been a ton of applications which were not
    compatible with Leopard and Vista. And some of those applications still
    have not been updated.

    This is not an issue unique to Nikon, Apple or any other manufacturer.
    Just look at the number of incompatibilties in VIsta world. I have
    not upgraded to Leopard yet, because of software issues with
    MissingSync, Nikon Software, Office X and others. The company I work
    for is just starting to roll out Vista becasues of literally 100's of
    compatibiltiy problems.

    Aaaaah. The good old "Nothing works with Leopard - boy does Vista suck!"
    redirection. If someone ever posted "Incompatibilities aren't unique to
    Vista - look at everything that doesn't work with Leopard," the Apple
    fans would be out in force to complain about how unfair the post was.

  16. THey're 'upgrading' to Vista already? The company I work for have just
    completed their NT to XP upgrade. Mind you we're talking 50,000
    machines. :-/
