According to the announcement there are "many, many things that it does 
not yet do." This is about the only believable statement in the 
announcement. Why would anyone consider using a product from a company 
that so unapologetically abandoned its loyal customers?

I spent a lot of money updating Textures before the advent of OS X. When 
I switched to OS X, the people at Bluesky misled me, and many others, 
with false promises of a quick release of an OS X version of Textures. 
No way do I believe for one second that Bluesky faced "insurmountable 
issues" when attempting to produce Textures for OS X. Bluesky's decision 
not to produce a new Textures was a pure business decision, their 
customers be damned.

I hope this feeble attempt by Bluesky to win back their customers fails 
miserably. With the many free and wonderful TeX options available for OS 
X users, it is certain that they won't have my business.
