If you expected more than what you got from the Mac Desktop Manager that is your fault for not reading what you were getting from the software. That's like complaining that you can't make a spreadsheet in Photoshop.
It was not that long ago that Mac users did not even have a Desktop Manager and were using The Missing Sync to get things done. I think you had misplaced expectations, and honestly RIM has been pretty regular with updates, I was happily surprised to see the wifi music syncing.
If you join the Beta program you can also get ahead of the game and see what is being developed and take part in the improvements. I know it's easier to just complain, but you could be part of the solution if you choose to.
I know I should have just ignored this post, and moved along, but I'm sick of people who just complain and never contribute or try to work out solutions. Sorry if I sound like a ****, I don't do this often but the horrible spelling and grammar sent me over the edge. I'll go yell at the kids to get off my lawn next time.

I also export my calendar, address book and archive my notes on the computer before a sync so that if anything happens, I still have a current copy of the data that can be restored.
I have set the DM to "This device is synchronized with other computers." It is safer.
Yes, the Windows DM has more capabilities, but the Mac DM works if used properly. My programs all sync fine and I didn't have to buy any more programs. I am not sure if Windows 7 has programs that sync using the DM. I would hope that by now Microsoft has included a decent Calendar that works with Blackberry instead of having to buy one of its bloated programs.

Though the mac version does work, you would still need the windows version if you want to update your phone's OS to newer version. Carriers are often slow, whereas leaks are faster at obtaining the latest updates.
With windows you can also shrink OS to your liking. Overall, using a windows is still better.
I used to use vmware to run windows xp on my macbook pro, just to load OS. But for no apparently reason it decided not to work anymore and got stuck at the notorious "uploading RAM image".
I have since gave up on virtualisation. I popped in a spare HDD on another macbook, and just install windows xp on it. So now it is a macbook that can only run windows natively. haha. no more updating woes.

I know I should have just ignored your post and moved along along but I'm sick of huge multinational corporations who ignore the feedback of their consumers in search greater profits.
