When started with Xojo I used the IDE on Linux and Windows. Never on Mac. I had tons of Issues with the IDE, starting with the fact that under Linux there is no local Help and going further that the IDE under Windows is crashing, not performant and sometimes not working as expected.
While I switched my Company Hardware to Mac (yes, the M1 is really a nice Idea) I also installed the Xojo IDE on the Mac and what shall I say? Behaves like it is another Software. The IDE is running well even with big projects, local help is available and much much more even with the 2019R32 Version on Big Sur.
Left me with the question to Xojo company: why Xojo was promising Windows and Linux IDE and delivering only MAC, why it is optimized and really working only on Mac? Are Customers with Windows and Linux not important for you?
And please no arguments Xojo has a good IDE you have to develop on Mac its anyhow better…I had to listen this arguments for a long time. No. Linux and Windows are performant as well for Java Development, C# Development, C++ Development and so on.
This incident is happened while Xojo was never taking care as much as needed for the other OS platforms.
