Haha, Yes indeed! ;)
But seriously, is is undermining MacOS 9 usage and feelings towards the OS if constantly X-suggestions popping up, and btw, it is as useless, if we would permanetely suggest Linux all the time people are asking for 9 software.

He/She was not asking "what CD-burning software can you quickly hand over"! ;)

That is what I read as well. But WaveBurner for 9 was a more advanced software than the X version for a long time. I read articles from 2007 that the new version is now slowly catching up to the 9 version. So even if I also doubt that waveburner for 9 has DDP built in, it is still a great mastering software, and highly professional.

so you think that it is more useful to suggest something which doesnt work or is not available, but at least it doesnt work for OS9.

btw., how do you think we sent premasters to our record companies between 1981 and 1996? :) noone needs a propertiary container format to print a glassmaster. (i am not saying the format would be a bad idea, but hey it is a propertiary format)

(and what a shame that waveburner is better than toast, isnt it)

Ha, thank you for all the discourse guys. I now have some good starting points.

You are an intelligent person, and usually we understand each other very well, even if we do not agree in every point. So please do not get polemic. This issue with X-suggestions has two main fields.

1. The first years (I say up to 10.4.x and 2005) every X suggestion was pure Apple marketing reproduction. 9 was better in nearly every field and we got the total force of a concern trying to push us into usage of a slow, bad designed, but  colourful completely different Operating System. A Unix! With all the lies of Apple like incompatibilities, with all the manipulation and brutality. Later all people had somehow implemented that "marketing speech" and permanetely reproduce that "X is better" in every silly situation.
Now when Rosetta was asking about DDP, you stated "DDP images is not exactly available in OS9", what is wrong and presenting the situation like if Mac OS 9 cannot do DDP because of some reason. But the correct answer would have been (when I try to write down your thoughts) something like "DDP is at Mac OS 9 only availaible in a few highly professional but abandoned programs that have been very expensive, and which are not available as cracks sadly".

2. The permanent disrespect about the questions and rather improper whataboutism.
Since 20 years now it is the same paradigm and working like that: "What sorts of Coffe are available?" leads to "No, no, coffe is crap, take some tea or better take some softdrinks".
That is extremely annoying. Especially for people like me who never used X and do not have it. It is exactly like the linux example that I used above. We are in a Mac OS 9 forum here, thus I am speaking up about it. I would not in a PPC forum, like macrumors for example where Mac OS 9 is one part of the topic.

I agree 100%.
But nevertheless Rosetta aked about DDP, so I tried to answer the question.

I do not understand.
