4.0.1 (Nov 16, 2006)
I don't understand the raison d'etre of this program. If there's an SSH daemon running, then WinSCP (a free product) is a beautiful GUI that supports secure transfer with full drag/drop capability etc.
2.1.1862 Beta (Aug 8, 2006)
I've been using this program since Beta1. For regular Windows programs, it works flawlessly. I have not tried to attach external devices or play games that require high speed accelerated video (but it's my opinion that if you need to do a lot of this, then use a PC).
For Mac users with the need to access Windows programs, perhaps for corporate use, this program is perfect.

Huh - it only works on Macintosh - much as I like Macs, they only have 5% of the market - how exactly is this equated to "most commonly used computers"?
--->And best of all, it runs on most commonly used computers

Uhmmm, yeah, they do....and they're very good at it --- that's WHY they are where they are now!
apple needs to focus on designing products that consumers will like to use

I use mine productively all the time....it doesn't replace my Mac (or my Windows or Linux boxes for that matter) but it certainly supplements them (and often replaces them) for various tasks for which I would have previously had no choice but to use a "PC". Such tasks including keeping up with relevant news (via RSS), checking and sending email, calendaring, access to all my tech documents (PDFs) and books (technical, non-fiction and fiction), checking (and sometimes trading) my financial portfolio and numerous other productive activities. It is pure ignorance to claim that one cannot use an iPad for productive activities. I even use it to display my sheet music when I'm performing, something not practical with a PC (ever try putting one on a music stand?). So in some ways it is even MORE productive.

True, it can only do one thing at a time....(if you ignore push notifications which actually lets it effectively do quite a few things at a time).
So here's the list of what I do, one at a time
Read my RSS feeds (NetNewswire)
Read Kindle books (Amazon Kindle app)
Read PDF documents (Good Reader)
Record MIDI (MIDI recorder with Line6 Interface)
Manage airline travel (Flight Trip)
Process guitar audio (Amplitube is amazing)
Read my music notation (Scorecerer)
Find stuff to do in NYC
Social networking (Facebook, reddit, IM)
and twenty or so other things that save me from bringing a laptop around...
Yeah, it's a computer!

Ha ha --- I didn't see your response before I essentially replied with the same comment!

Object-oriented does not IMPLY that you don't need extra wrappers.
As for Qt, it's a trade-off....if you're trying to make an app available on many platforms, then it's far less expensive (for developers) to leverage a cross-platform API. As for who wants to use it? That totally depends on what it is. Many applications are helpers to get your job done more efficiently, and if they do so, then you typically don't care whether they feel like other apps....they're still letting you get things done more efficiently.
