The company that bought up the rights to Canvas are particularly bad.
Canvas started as a Mac only product that is now only available on the
PC, and hasn't been supported on the Mac for 6 years or so. In addition,
their file format is not compatible with most any other graphics
program, meaning that if I were to switch, I would have to first convert
hundreds of files to a different format in Canvas before I could edit
them in another program. That is the only reason I keep an SL partition
on my 2 Macs.
