First, I'm not keen on rumors or what might happen, it's always hit or miss and rarely worth taking any time to really discuss, but there has been some recent news that it may soon be possible for a MacOS to run iOS apps (no word on Windows capability).


There has long been a request for a thin FMP client. Something that couldn't develop if it wanted to, but a lower cost point that would enable more users. This of course raises the question of how does FMI license this use?


Just curious what others think of the idea - good or bad. I'm intrigued by it, but curious to see how licensing would be addressed. Would they start charging for FMGo? Would a new price level for connections come into play?


Look forward to reading other points of view.
