(The Settings pane in the Project Gallery dialog lets you set how many recently opened files show in the File > Open Recent submenu.)

 
 

Poll Preview: Paying Your Fair Share

Send Article to a Friend

Poll Preview: Paying Your Fair Share -- Matt Deatherage's article this week about Gadget Software's misappropriation of shareware utilities from other developers highlights an unusual case of using software without paying for it. But what about the more common situation of not paying for the shareware programs we all use? Is creating shareware a financially viable business, or do too few people pay for shareware to make it worthwhile? This week's poll question, then, is: "Of the shareware programs you use regularly on your Macintosh, for approximately what percentage have you paid?" Please be truthful when you vote on our home page - our polls are anonymous. [ACE]
