Just out of curiosity why is Affinity being cross platform important to some people? in Pre-V2 Archive of Affinity on Desktop Questions (macOS and Windows) Posted October 4, 2014 @hifred You are basically arguing over semantics at this point. I don't know how easy it is for a Windows developer to make a Mac product since I am not a developer. When I said "it was easy" what I really meant was it was easier then bringing a product based on Mac technologies over to Windows that doesn't have the equivalent technologies. Of course bringing it to Windows wouldn't "break everything" I said it would cripple the product. Instead of having a great product you would have a watered down sorry port of Affinity Designer. One of the developers said another reason for not porting the product is they just aren't that impressed with Windows 8. Here is a post on their Facebook page on September 17: " It's not out of the question at some point but we're focusing on finishing the mac suite over the next 12 months first. To be honest Win 8 wasn't a confidence booster to start ploughing loads of dev on this new suite into - hopefully Microsoft get a better grip on what Windows will become at some stage!" So yes it's a limitation of Windows 8. I ask you the same question again, if Serif can make a good port of Affinity over to Windows why wouldn't they do that and get paid by all those Windows users? Financially speaking that would be the logical thing to do and ye they don't do it. Why do you think that is?
