And what happened to Apple's much vaunted "Office killer" suite? Oh dear ...That's not true. Rosetta II is a bridge from Intel to M1 and is making it easier for non-M1 chipset apps to run. Some really low-level stuff isn't there because it's easier to show third party software companies how to change their tools. It's a tiny change and Olympus could probably make it happen in a day.
None of this would have been an issue if Intel actually fixed the problems and security flaws their chipsets had. Even Windows 10 has to down-regulate to prevent certain bugs from occurring.
Go ahead and edit a Wordstar '79 file in Notepad... Go ahead. Also, while you're at it try and get my USB Hauppauge MPEG Video encoder to work. It stopped working after Windows XP SP3 - Still works with my Mac.
The cable shows data to Windows, meaning I can use the camera as a storage device or anything else. So it works fine that way. But obviously it's different when it comes to Olympus Workspace.There are USB-C charging cables and USB-C data cables. Find your original cable or buy a proper one.
Possibly you have forgotten that Olympus is out of the camera business as of Jan 1, 2021. They will not be making any updates to software for their legacy cameras, so it begins.Actually, Apple machines are indeed based on industry standards. Olympus software is based on 20 year old industry standards. Have you already forgotten how quickly Windows 10 obsoleted a whole generation of computers just because they could?
To be fair, the entire Olympus software ecosystem is YEARS behind anything from any of the other photo editors. Who actually thinks that in 2020, making a small change to an image warranted a 15 second "draw" time to apply it?
I hope Olympus is working on it. In the meantime, you can run the OI.Share smartphone app and update wirelessly through it.
It's not Apple's job to keep their technology compatible with old software, it's the job of the software developer's to keep current on the platforms they want to support.Or Apple should refrain from making devices and OSes that do not comply with industry standards ...
Just a thought ... .
I'm talking about trying to open a document created with the 1990s Apple "office" suite.
Oh John, you're really stuck back there.
I used AppleWorks on an Apple //e, and ClarisWorks/AppleWorks on my Mac. Well familiar with them. Good software for their time. I wonder if the current suite will open those AppleWorks Mac documents. Haven't tried it.
