Yes, San Dimas will run on both Windows (XP and Vista) and the Mac (OSX 10.4 or higher).

Those are the OS that the majority of web users are using. Support for Win2000 would have been nice, but I can understand them looking forward instead of trying to write for every OS that's been made.

Plus it's in beta (and yeah, most of ebay stays that way *heh*)

Since it's in beta, I see it as a good time for sellers (especially people with ebay stores whose items are always hard to find) to give ebay some input into what people want.   Of course, the big question is whether ebay will listen.  Which I have my doubts about, but you know the old saying: it's better to have tried and failed, than to have not tried at all.

For example, the PO has Click and Ship and Shipping Assistant.  They do exactly the same thing, except C+S works and SA doesn't.

Properly written programs are OS independent.

eBay still hasn't figured out how to make the search engine work properly amongst other things, and now their doing something new???   :m218 lol! 

I get uneasy with new eBay programs.  I wonder how safe it is to use? 

I prefer programs that operate independently of the OS.   :ct0559

Like the blocked bidder list, where ebaY lost hundreds of thousands of names, then blamed the users for not keeping backups.
