Re: What's going on with Fo2PiX?

FWIW, I have heard from a graphics software developer that Win7 is much faster. I too have it running (under emulation on a Mac via Parallels) and it indeed does seem faster. It's still Windows (!) but maybe MS is finally getting somewhere with it ;-).

My point is, when you get your new computer you might as well move ahead with the OS and consider leaving ArtMasterPro behind, rather than letting it drag you down. Maybe you can keep the old box around as a second workstation for legacy apps such as this. Or get a Mac and run OS-X, XP, Win7 and Linux all at once if you want! Each virtual machine has its own separate environment so it's easy to operate this way (screenshot attached). You can go full screen with any OS if you want, as well as drag and drop files among them and the host.

Re: What's going on with Fo2PiX?

Hmmm ... good points plugsnpixels; keep the old PC tower for legacy software from expired companies and step up to a a Mac.Then that screenshot running 4 OS is quite an enticement.

"Since Fo2pix is "no more," has no website, no longer replies to e-mails, has abandoned support if their customers, what's your opinion of making abandonware available?"

Yes; I'm not stymied by highend morality considering F02Pix demise. The firm handling liquidation would probabably invite a bid to purchase code than censor with a copyright infringement warning. Abandonware - Yes.

Re: What's going on with Fo2PiX?

On the Mac side, if you have a G4, you can run anything from OS9 to Leopard (by booting into either as needed) to keep old apps going. Otherwise the VM setup on an Intel Mac such as I described is probably one's best bet (I run any Windows software I need to that way; I don't have a PC box).

The fo2pix developer can be contacted; he has a model photo gallery (I posted a link to it in another thread, I believe). Though I haven't heard if anyone actually tried to reach him.
