If you don’t have a Mac and aren’t planning to get a Mac, we’ve just freed up about five minutes of your time.
Go spend it wisely!
For Mac Enthusiasts
We’ve been using Apple products since 1979; over the years, hundreds of them. Everyone in the company, except our superb Techie team, uses a Mac as their primary computer. Almost 20% of our website traffic is from Mac platforms. So, it has pained us daily for 18 months that the version of Word Microsoft sells for the Mac will not support TheFormTool.
We’ve tried Parallels and still have it installed; version 8 is pretty good. But our hearts were captured six months ago by CrossOver, a little program with just one purpose, to allow some Windows programs to run on a Mac. You can read about our experience with it below, at TheFormTool on a Mac (v2.0). The bottom line: we love it!
The TheFormTool/Word/CrossOver/Mac lashup works nearly perfectly. We can run TheFormTool on Word 2007 and Word 2010 seamlessly, without the risk of Windows exposing our Macs or our network to to the world, not to mention the dollars saved by avoiding buying Windows or its prophylatics.
At TheFormTool, LLC, we have some amazing products coming to help the Mac folks, and the Linux people, and the Word Perfect users, but they won’t become available until 2014. Meanwhile, what’s a Mac user to do?
Here’s Our offer to Mac Users
For a limited time only, if you’re running Mac 10.8x on a recent machine, a Mac, MacBook, or MacBook PRO. Sorry, no iPad or iPhone. The version of Word that Microsoft is providing them is even more lobotomized than usual We’ll install CrossOver, Word for Windows (2007 or 2010 only) and TheFormTool on your machine for you. You supply the Word for Windows program, we’ll do the rest. You’ll get a fully functional Word experience with the magic of TheFormTool running on your Mac.
It’s that simple.
We’re going to devote only limited resources to this project and only for a limited time. It’s by appointment only. The price is $395 per machine, plus whatever you spend on Word 2007 or 2010 (currently about $120 to $150 on eBay). Our price includes a license for CrossOver and a license for TheFormTool PRO.
If you’d like to make an appointment, please drop us a line at Mac-at-theformtool.com. We’ll set a time, invoice you, and guarantee a successful installation.
You’ll love the experience of TheFormTool on a Mac.
It’s simply remarkable.™
