White Pine certainly is promoting the new beta release of CU-SeeMe for
Windows and downplaying the availability of CU-SeeMe for the Macintosh -
the only mention of the existence of the Macintosh version is a
one-sentence link at the bottom of White Pine's home page. This is
ironic, in view of the fact that CU-SeeMe was originally developed for
the Macintosh environment.

Ever since the foreboding announcements of the possibility of Apple
Computer's demise, it seems I've witnessed more emphasis on Windows
products. Since the idea of the disappearance of the Macintosh is
premature at best, are we Macintosh enthusiasts relegated to begging for
inclusion of Macintosh-platform products? I still say, God forbid the
limitation to a single product/platform, particularly Windows.
