So what does this do that the combination of Linotype Font Explorer(free) and FontBook at $10 do not do? I would encourage users to explore what these 2 utilities will do that Font Pilot does not. I hesitate to starting the listing since I believe it would be much too long to be considered a comment.
While it serves the entire Mac community to encourage software development and interest, it also is equally as serving to charge for their efforts only if the product meets or exceeds the following criteria:
- Does something better or a much more unique and user friendly way than the competition.
- Does something that no one else does
- Offers better value through more features and/or a lower price than the competition.
Otherwise the product serves the Mac Community in no way other to dilute a product need that is already filled and confuse the user.
While I would be the first to agree that W.C. Fields would take exception to my criteria ( i.e. "t's morally wrong to allow a sucker to keep his money."), rest assured, W.C. Fields never conceived of any kind of interest in the Mac Community, much less an ethical one. And in my opinion, neither do developers who subscribe to the ideology of Mr. Fields, who's numbers seem to be on the rise.
