[Version 6.2.6]

This still works fine with 10.5 - for example using a text editor to edit /private/etc/apache2/php.ini

@Danco I don't think I have Rosetta installed. You don't need it to run Pseudo, I think Pseudo is a 'fat binary'.

Of course this is no guarantee it will work with Lion / 10.7 but Rosetta won't be the problem.

@Omich Have you tried it or are you just hollering? I'm using a Mac Pro early 2008 / OS X 10.6.7 now. I just opened TextEditor by dragging it on the 'open apps by dragging it to this window' window of Pseudo. Works fine. Also, I can then get into folders of others user accounts on my machine. (I created those myself for testing)

When I use TextEditor as a normal user, without Pseudo, I can as usual, NOT look into other accounts' folders. Not sure if it works perfectly in all possible scenarios of course, after just this short test, but it seems to work fine with 10.5 eh.. and 10.6 now. It's certainly not a PPC only app.

Hmm… First you post asking for a Pseudo replacement and a moment later you answer yourself by linking to a competitor. This is beginning to smell like an advertisement.

Why would anybody de-install Rosetta first? It won't make any difference on the performance of your new MBP. Besides, I don't think people who know how to do that need either Pseudo or your app.

Maybe I am that narrow minded and blind. Keep your pants on. I just note that it works on my Mac. There might be Pseudo users interested. If it were just about you, we wouldn't need to post about it here. By labeling it 'PPC only' you're suggesting it won't work on any Intel Mac. Well, it does. Maybe you need to install Rosetta, if you started with a clean system 10.6 install.

Obviously, most Mac users run updated former 10.4 or 10.5 systems and have Rosetta already installed. Or will just install Rosetta, because they don't need to compensate for a small SSD 'disk'.

I tried several free and shareware disk catalog makers for the Mac. DiskCatalogMaker was the most reliable by far. Others sometimes crashed at a particular (faulty?) disk or had other quirks.

Eventually, I offered to translate it to my native language, because I wanted to do something back. The author thought it was a good idea and so I did - and I still translate the updates a few times per year. DCM has come a long way and it's getting better with every version.

It's also translated in several other languages, like German, French and Spanish.

The only thing I would like to see added to DCM, is a Spotlight index function.

It's been four years since this review. Meanwhile, I've learned that such a Spotlight index feature, although nice, would take a very long time to index, depending on the contents of the volume or disk. AFAIK there is no other catalog app that does this.

Along the same lines, there is an option for indexing all QuickView screens. It works fine but it takes much, much more time, sometimes about 20 minutes per DVD. Also, the archives that result from this are much bigger. For me, this does not contribute to a better experience. Still, it might be just what you need.
