You need to move files between Macs and PCs, but you work in a small office, and there's no networking expert at hand. Have no fear - Thursby's MacSOHO 1.0 is for you.

MacSOHO puts the NetBEUI protocol on a Macintosh for the first time, and the net effect is simple: You can drag and drop between platforms. Macs appear in Windows' Network Neighborhood window, and PCs show up on a Mac in MacSOHO's Network Neighborhood window.

MacSOHO is a breeze to install, unlike Thursby's TCP/IP-based Dave, which requires some PC-networking knowledge. Setup assistants for both platforms walk you through the steps.
