Power Surfacing...Only for Windows?

I was very excited to see that Power Surfacing was put in the app store...but instantly bummed when I saw it is only on Windows. Will it be compatible with Mac in the future?

    Mitch - please let Power Surfacing know so that they can keep a tally of how many people want this.

    Same for Simsolid. Thats why I like integrated apps, you can move seamlessly between machines. Rather than a mac version I want to see apps integrated.

    I think the partners that have integrated app's will have more success than the desktop apps unless they are driving their customer base from other key features which aren't available elsewhere.

    Thanks for the feedback.  Currently, Power Surfacing only runs on Windows platforms.  In the future, we would like to make it an integrated app.  But we felt it was most important to make it available as soon as possible.  Making Power Surfacing an integrated app will take more time.

    The web is a wild frontier for programmers. A few months ago Facebook open sourced their new framework which re-writes the DOM. The most influential web breakthrough is node-js which is re-writing everything we do on the web. 

    So, how do you develop a web app? The web is changing so fast it's hard to figure out how to jump on board.
