I work for a big IT company, the Client is the key point of our Mission.
That's the reason.
Upgrading this little piece of sw, Nord shows it's Client oriented vocation, not only to the G2 owners, but to all. To know that your investment is protect, overmore when the instrument is not upgraded with a new release, but is the last of its cycle, is the most importat pubblicity for Nord.
It is a cost-benefit problem, from my point of view, in this case, cost is ridiculus and the (Nord) benefit are very high.
That's all

Does your company also keep updated ALL your software products, including the ones out of support (deprecated/discontinued)...? And if it does it, it does for free?
Following your thinking, then Microsoft should have continued to support Win XP and all old devices of 10 or more years old PCs...? :roll:

And all this when a (free) VM running Win Xp (or even Wine, I tried it with the G2 editor a Mac) solves the problem of running the existing G2 editor on any modern PC...? Come on... ;)

PS: I have been working for a big IT company too... "the Client is the key point of our Mission", sure, as far as they pay... :mrgreen:

This exactly, and I am also in the IT/software field. No one updates 10 year old products for free.

As to your assertion that the benefit to Nord is "very high" - totally subjective statement. I betthe reality is a very small number of affected users.

Wine? not yet... not on Catalina ;)
The funny thing is that seem that we are talking about an entire OS, a monumental effort spent for free... :)
I do not claim anything from Nord, but i think that a company that put 1 keyboard on every stage could spend 1 day to adapt 1 program (for free or not).

I wrote "or Wine", a VM with any 32 bit version of Windows (or OS x) can run the G2editor, the same OS any G2 user has been running it on so far (as all users of other brands' discontinued products will have to do); I am also not so sure it takes just 1 day to update that old piece of software... points of view ;-)
