Lest my recent comments about MACL 1.3 be misconstrued, I wish to state
that I realize that producing and maintaining a system the size of MACL
is a MASSIVE undertaking. If I was too harsh, I will be glad to state my
position (note: AN OPINION) unequivocably, which is this:
I am VERY pleased with the TECHNICAL aspects of MACL. I speak from
LISP machine experience (7 years +); I was AMAZED at how much of
the LISPM functionality is built into the product on a (relatively) small
platform (MAC in as little as 1 meg).
I have met both the project manager and some of her technical people, and they
are top notch in my book.
My problems (and I think I'm being fair here) stem mainly
from the APDA management of this product; limbo is not a nice place
to be, particularly for a programming tool/environment such as MACL. As
I stated to the APDA phone reps (they were very courteous and professional, by
the way), I just need to be able to PLAN when things will happen (i.e.,
delivery); delays per se are understandable.
My apologies to Apple (and others on this mailing list) if I came across too
