Mull5 Posted December 5, 2005 Share Posted December 5, 2005 Regarding Paint.NET for Windows 9x: In this forum's FAQs you say, as well as citing other reasons, that any Paint.NET version for 9x couldn't use Unicode-dependent features because 9x can't use it consistently. Actually, Unicode is a currently available download provide by Microsoft. The latest version is supposed to be stable. So, could you spell out please a few of the other features that you would have to downgrade for, or otherwise have problems with in, a Windows 9x version of Paint.NET? And is it true to suggest that accommodating 9x would necessarily degrade the program in any way for NT-based users (except insofar as you spent valuable time away from developing NT-only code)? Can you counteract my suspicion that the lack of support for 9x systems reflects more a lack of will in the Paint.NET team and a corporate policy of 'OS lifespan and regular paid-for upgrades' in your sponsors, than any extra-ordinary hardship or burden that would be involved in taking the necessary steps to make Paint.net compatible with older Microsoft OS? Without wanting to sound pushy: if you reply, I would be sincerely grateful if you would please answer my questions, and not avoid them by resorting to "Upgrade your browser!"-type replies. Thanks (and good luck with Paint.NET 2.6). Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
