I've been receiving a fair amount of mail on this issue. Here's a note from Larry Jones, who gave me permission to publish his thoughts. --DS


"I'm sure others must have noticed a certain mental "disconnection" at Apple regarding Hypercard.


"Ergo: Apple says they are 'deeply committed' to the education market. MANY Hypercard stacks have been created by teachers for school. (Some might call them scholarly "intellectual capital" worth $$?) Will my education vendor help protect the investments made over the years by our school?
If my school has to start over, why do I need Apple? Why should I care about OS X?"
