LightWave for Mac Outsells Windows Version

NewTek credits OS X 10.1 By Dave Nagel
In a report from MacCentral today, NewTek is quoted as saying that, for the first time, LightWave for the Macintosh has outsold the Windows version. MacCentral's report covers a number of developers who are getting behind the platform, including several in the creative space, such as Corel, Deneba and Macromedia, all of whom have released OS X versions of some or all of their creative applications.

NewTek credits Mac OS X 10.1 for the reversal in the company's Macintosh business. If you'd like to see what NewTek had to say, please read the story at

We named NewTek as one of the "champions of OS X" earlier this year. They were the first company to release a port of a major 3D application to OS X?actually any major application?even before OS X was in final release. Since then, every major Macintosh 3D developer (including Electric Image and Maxon) has ported its 3D products to OS X. The new OS has also brought Alias|Wavefront into the fold. Last month we reported that the company's Maya Complete product had received more preorders for the Mac OS X version than any other platform release in the company's history.
