Stuck in Their Own World
I’m wondering why some folks/institutions are just stuck in their own world for their own reasons. More specifically, why hasn't the AIA made the commitment to accessible contract documents for the Mac. When an inquiry is made to the AIA on how to actually use the documents, the response is “buy the windows interface for your Mac, run the interface, and our program will work perfectly in there.”
Hmmmm, shouldn’t it be the other way around? If a Mac person were purchasing something, they are the “customer” and doesn’t the seller want to make more sales? So why the exclusionary approach? Sounds like somewhere an ostrich has its head stuck in the sand; and you know what part that leaves exposed.
