Poor MacDrive. The latest hot tamale of a rumor says that, starting with Snow Leopard (10.6), Windows users will be able to access Mac files without the use of any special software. You’d mount the Mac as you would any other Windows machine.
I say “poor MacDrive” because, if true, that effectively makes MacDrive obsolete. There’s no point in paying for software to accomplish what Apple has thrown in for free.
Unless, of course, you choose not to upgrade to Snow Leopard—then MacDrive is just as useful as ever.
