Ed has (thankfully) changed his mind, according to his site right now.
"However, it didn't save me any time since I immediately
got many hundreds
of e-mails from Mac users asking me to continue selling VueScan. Most of
the e-mails were from
Mac OS users who had never even used VueScan
A few were quite rude, most were very polite.
I also got an e-mail a vendor of a FireWire
to SCSI converter that made me
change my mind.
They were depending on FireWIre->SCSI scanner support
Mac OS 8/9/X for revenues, and the program manager
told me he'd have to lay
two people off if I
dropped Mac OS support in VueScan.
If you're a Mac OS user, please stop e-mailing me about this.
You win, I
give up. I'll continue releasing VueScan for Mac OS 8/9/X,
and in return,
please stop clogging my e-mail ."
