Always BETA

I agree that Windows platform PCs have too many softwares and many developers working on it. Softwares for Windows are growing to damn fast and sometime i think, wow!, i can’t believe it.

However, the big problem of Windows is stability and error fixing. I am using Mac for years but i rarely to see the errors on it. But the biggest problem for Mac platform is limitation of softwares support and developing. For sure, Yahoo! Messenger which i am using everyday is still in Beta version and this Beta version is for more than a year and it seems that no sign that Yahoo! will move or develop their Yahoo! Messenger for Mac from beta version to a final one though.

Damn, poor Mac!!
