Updating/MAC

Does anyone have any thoughts about updating an HP-2 using a MAC? I hate to ask for favors, but I wonder why there hasn’t been an application for MAC users.

The reason is market share..

In the area of desktop and laptop computers, Microsoft Windows is generally above 70% in most markets and at 77% globally, Apple's macOS at around 13%, Google's ChromeOS at about 6% (in the US) and Linux at around 2%. All these figures vary somewhat in different markets, and depending on how they are gathered.

Apple says there are 100 million mac users. And there is over 4000 million windows 10 users alone.

Perhaps because MAC users are not a big enough market to justify the development expense?  Same reason there is little malware for mac.  The market it too small to attract a lot of attention from malware writers.

Correction.  Only 400 million windows 10 users.

I do everything in unix 
all my computers and laptops either run Solaris or Linux
got rid of Microsoft a while ago and that was a good decision 

unix is much easier you can read config files and edit them too...
If the network is slow jsut update your DNS settings   no need to reboot

Buy Parallels for $79 and install Windows 10. It’ll ask you to activate but all you lose are some personalization features if you don’t. Runs Sentinel fine. 

Some manufacturers are finally figuring out that more of us have a Mac on our desk and building macOS versions of their software: RT Systems, Expert Electronics and others.
