Casio started releasing software for Mac Os X

Casio has launched two programs this week for Mac Os X
-> Fx-Cg Manager Trial
-> Casio Prizm Picture Conversion

A few years ago, they just release software for Windows, that had the highest number of users.
However in the last years Apple and its OS has grown a lot and they are following the trend of the market and consumers. ;)

Sorry for the offtopic, but:

I love Casio calculators. Their design, their style of input and output.
Casio is a great company but it is really shame ,for its software support.
I now have a 9750ga and a 9860 , and their software for communication (fa-124) and c ide (casio c sdk) are realy two big pile of trash.
No design at all, they look like windows 3.11, very old, no updates.
A program with a good basic editor (auto-completion,debugger), a communication software, and a great new ide, would boost their sales. I don't really understand how they cannot see it.
Calculators have a specific audience, and that audience will respect any decent software release.

Can someone make a copy of the installed program files? Just curious.

Fx-Interface 1.9.6 was a good program. The Basic Editor of FA-124 is less good.
Good idea to make their software compatible with Mac, we expect to Linux now.

@Cfxm you can use HFSExplorer for windows to get these files.

Mac software is pretty hard to port out, Apple frameworks (like Cocoa/Core libraries) will require some serious rewriting, and moreover without the source code.
