Final Writer-Feedback required about future development

I'm currently looking to see what my potential market is for Final Writer.

So here it goes how much would you be willing to pay for Final Writer? I would like to keep it to those who are willing to purchase a copy which will help support the future development of the program. This will help me determine which platforms/branches to support.

Well, is any features list planned? Or we are discussing regarding about how much we would be willing to pay for a fully native NG port of existing version?

I'd love a native morphos version, if it can read/write .docx files then it would be incredible.

You posted in the Amiga area... so does that mean you're seriously considering
working on an AmigaOS version of Final Writer?

I contributed to your previous project and never saw anything worthwhile
come of it. Will this time produce different results?

So... if you complete a reliable AmigaOS native PPC port with all the current
features and I'll gladly pay on delivery & successful testing.

Complete a reliable, working AmigaOS native PPC port plus the ability to fully
import & export .doc/.docx/.odt formats and I'll pay much more on delivery &
successful testing.

So are you more serious this time?

Are you talking gutenprint? ;) That was as I stated many times was merely a hobby project.

@terminills,

Final Copy2 is a bit old, Amiga writer is not too bad but unavailable now. A modernized and polished Final Writer would fairly be priced at around $35 US. IMHO.

If it runs fast, flawlessly and it's not a dirty port, yes I'll buy a copy for sure.

I might be interested in an AmigaOS4 version if you add a spell checker in it.

I'd imagine the people that contributed to it would have appreciated that
information beforehand.

So FinalWriter work is not a "hobby project" ?

@terminills

as i mentioned here, i'd be looking for versions for AOS4 and AROS and would like to pay around $50 -- depending on the feature set, of course.

I always liked Finalwriter. i'd pay $50 for os4 port, and more if it can do open/libreoffice formats and msword doc and docx.

same for finalcalc, with open/libreoffice and excel files.

@terminills

Fully native with the ability to load and save documents in current popular formats and updated tool bar icons to freshen up the appearance would be a good start
I'd recommend AISS for the icons since it already has pretty much every icon you'd ever need and it gives a consistent feel with other applications using it.

I'd probably be willing to pay 40-50 for it on physical media and slightly less if download only.

@OlafS25,

If all 3 in the Final series were updated a bit, released box set would be $99 US easy.

its all too vague to answer anything more sensible than the question is. but frankly i doubt i will be buying any text editor for amiga in foreseeable future. normally i might consider contributing to some realistic bounty, not this times though. so, sorrz to say, all in all my answer is im not going to buy it.
