Say Goodbye to all of This. And Hello to Oblivion.

Microsoft has acquired iView Multimedia, the company that makes iView MediaPro and other DAM software products.

iView Media, which was initially developed for the Macintosh and then ported to the PC, will continue to be developed for both platforms the company says. In typical fashion, however, look for Microsoft to put Mac support on the back burner and for future versions of the software to become increasingly unstable on the Mac. I wouldn't be surprised if Microsoft drops the Mac version altogether, though it is a formidable competitor to Apple's Aperture and Adobe's Lightroom.
