The duende isn't a good exemple ...they went hybrid for stability and compatibility issue : firewire ports ect .....after months of support struglling
UA didn't even tried going multiplatform except pcie,pcmcia ....
See how long after they released satellite ...we still don't have Win drivers
Native .? the equation is simple :
If they go native they will gain alot of users ...and lose a lot of sale due to warezed ....the thing is does the new native buyers will be superior to the lose of sale if warezed ......risky situation that they delay the most as possible ....
