An Interesting Read from StarDock
StarDock is a software company which I would be willing to bet just about all of you have heard of or personally use some of their products.
I havenâ€™t actually purchased any of their product although I have tried the free version of ObjectDock and played Sins of a Solar Empire. Why I found this I have no idea, but just a few weeks ago the annual StarDock customer report came out and for some reason I decided to read it, you can download it here.
The report is short and concise and written by StarDock CEO Brad Wardell, normally this is the last kind of document I would waste my time reading, but If you do take a look I think youâ€™ll see why. Brad Wardell provides an overview of everything StarDock had achieved over the past year and provides a frank and honest assessment of their strengths, weaknesses and future plans.
Even though I donâ€™t have an interest as such in StarDock myself it was great to see a company so open and honest with their customers and without any feeling of PR bulldust.
The other thing which interested me is StarDockâ€™s new Impulse software distribution system which I think it brilliant, although it does need a lot of work done such as considerably more content and some stability improvements.
If you take a look at Impulse youâ€™ll see the kind of modern, internet focused software distribution application that Microsoft should be providing with their Windows Marketplace and Digital locker. I wonâ€™t go into any detail but I recommend you checking it out just for interest sake, their really isnâ€™t much content at this point but the Customer report outlines plans to really improve on that over the next year.Advertisement
