    The system requirements (for Mac) indicate Intel Macs ONLY (for authoring)! Why? Shouldn’t it be a Universal Binary?

    And where’s the Commodore 64 support?

    What a deal-breaker.

    I would still like to see a linux version… since there is no more Window$ in my life. I have hope for future releases since Mac OS is based on Unix.

    I’m at the GDC, met the Adobe gang, and got a pen! BTW, in case no one knew, the engineering team for Director has over 40 people on it…Toodles!

    Those linux users represent less tham 1% of the market and think the others should stop working for the 99% to please them

    I don’t know where you get your number but Linux Desktop is, dependending on W3Ccounter, at 1.34%, the same as Win98 now. As for mac OSX is at 4%…. not very far beyond.

    Should there only be a WinXP and 2000 Director version? No. Ubiquity is the answer, no matter the popularity of the OS. Flash 9 is playing on Linux, why not Shockwave. And since OSX is a nix based OS, the port to linux should be straitghtforward.

    i found they add the UNICODE Support to this release, i hope to be able to develop multi language applications especially engilsh and arabic

    “The system requirements (for Mac) indicate Intel Macs ONLY (for authoring)! Why? Shouldn’t it be a Universal Binary?”


    Some Intel macs (Mac Pros) were introduced less than 2 years ago, meaning there are a LOT of G5 machines still in circulation.

    What no support for AS3? – why dont Adobe support their other products integration into Director? Its basically Director 10 with a few little improvements. Nothing that hasnt been possible with 3rd party Xtras. For the upgrade price Im disappointed.

    Linux is on my wish-list too. Especially for Kiosk applications: a museum that wants to install 20 computers wouldn’t have to pay for 20 windows or mac licences, it could re-use old computers and if the application would crash and the OS would be wide open, not a lot of youngsters know enough Linux to wreck havoc…

    For linux users why not leave director behind finally and use flex/flash. Great support of linux flash player. Not to mention AIR coming. But if you want to use director and your app is shockwave safe just use wine. I have firefox running under wine with shockwave plugin. But you MUST use the windows version of firefox so it’s using wine and the win32 API.

    I have asked for a version of Shockwave for Linux for a long time. Yes there are compromises one can make, wine, crossover, cedega and reaktivate, but in the end, nothing is as good as a native shockwave executable.

    Shockwave can do much more than Flash and that is why I keep saying I will pay $1,000 if Adobe ports it to Linux. They just aren’t listening.
