Apogee Discontinues Windows Development


Here's the statement that Apogee sent us...
As of 2009, Apogee Electronics will no longer develop products for the Microsoft Windows platform. Apogee has made this decision in order to focus all research, development, and support resources on the Apple platform with its unparalleled power and stability. Apple offers a wide range of affordable, powerful desktop and laptop solutions ideally suited for music creation and audio production.
Apogee will continue to develop and manufacture premium converters, microphone preamplifiers, clocking solutions, and supporting technologies that provide world-class solutions for Mac-based production environments.
Windows users can obtain the Apogee sound by connecting Apogee converters to their Windows-compatible audio interface via AES, optical, or S/PDIF. Apogee technical support will continue to support legacy Windows configurations installed on Windows XP Service Pack 2.
Any questions regarding Windows support can be directed to Apogee technical support, available Monday through Friday 9 A.M. to 6 P.M. Pacific Standard Time. Technical Support can be reached either via phone at 310-584-9394, email at support@apogeedigital.com, or fax at 310-584-9385.

    Hooray for less choice and vendor lock-in! A wise business decision for sure, especially considering the strong commitment Apple showed to its pro audio segment in recent years. Way to go, Apogee. Perhaps you'd like to limit your PSUs to 110V next? Just, you know, because?

    Yeah JanM - I'm with you, are they aligning for an Apple buyout or something?

    Perhaps they can't raise enough cash from their incredibly expensive stuff to continue to support - or maybe they think that all windows users deserve are crapy Creative Labs soundcards, and this decision will somehow persuade PC users to jump, after all, you'll be able to use it on a Mac running bootcamp right? Oh wait, d'oh....

    Just give up on an outdated outclassed outperformed work environment. Should I say play environment. Apple is and has been the work horses of choice for professionals longer than I have been doing this. Apogee has made a wise choice. If you have a problem hook it up to your creative labs card's digi I/O and stop whining. While you figure it out me and my macs will be working.

    whats the point in giving this a hurrah or a "suck it" I mean really? thats like say yeah! crayola is only gonna make the thin crayons instead of both thin and fat ones.... pointless. I'm sure they have their reasons but if it doesn't effect you than why bother bashing someones chosen platform? p.s. I am a mac man. so I guess i don't have to suck it. but still. that comment is lame.
