Hi,

I love running SyMenu in Windows, it's a real convenience!
Is there are any chance to have it on Apple devices, I know there are tools converting exe to dmg.
I am very unhappy with certain features of Apple devices, but I stick to the opinion that they have more benefits than issues. https://appleworld.today/2020/12/19/opinion-getting-back-to-the-iphone-battery-service-issue/

Hi Aphrodite and welcome to the forum.
You are referring to an interesting thing that deserves an in-depth answer.

The topic of the SyMenu portability to others OS has always been in my mind, but it's the first time that Apple comes into it. My thoughts were always for a possible porting to Linux not to Apple.

My opinion is that SyMenu perfectly fits in the Windows world for two reasons:
1) the SyMenu suites are 90% Windows software;
2) the best menu features, the most complex and interesting ones, are tied to the Windows API, not the .NET framework that'd allow the direct porting.

Therefore if I port SyMenu to Linux I would have a suite with very few programs and a menu with few and really basic functions.
These are bad premises to decide to embark in a huge work and for these reasons the SyMenu porting outside Windows OS is not planned.

Regarding Apple are there really anyone who is willing to spend twice the real value of an hardware, getting stuck in an expensive cloud ecosystem, in an expending peripherals ecosystem, and then searching for freeware software???
It's like a Porsche or Ferrari owner going to the supermarket to buy economic windscreen wipers and seat covers...
