ThinkFree Corp., a company that specializes in Web-based office productivity solutions, has pulled the Mac OS X version of ThinkFree Office for now due to problems with Apple’s implementation of the Java Virtual Machine in Mac OS X.
The info was based on an e-mail from ThinkFree’s technical support. However, CEO Bob Wise said the tech support personnel were “unfortunately not updated on our latest developments.”
“We have made enormous progress on our OS X version in the last three weeks and support wasn’t updated,” he told MacCentral. “Needless to say we have corrected that and we expect to be shipping shortly. We intend to release our OS X product within 60 days.”
ThinkFree Office uses Java technology to support a wide variety of operating systems and device platform. Written from the ground up in Java, the ThinkFree Office takes advantage of Mac OS X’s Aqua user interface, according to TJ Kang, president and CTO for ThinkFree.
