I'm interested in an Omni-authored Getting Things Done program, once it is on the market, that is. Until then, vaporware is an apt description for a program promised, yet not available, regardless of what folks at Omni think.
Daring Fireball ...forthcoming “GTD” task management application, OmniFocus. ... and, likewise, given Omni’s track record and reputation, I’m sure they have developers working on OmniFocus and that it too will eventually ship. But just because a pre-announced product isn’t pure hype that never actually sees the light of day — like, say, Duke Nukem Forever, or the “native Mac port” of the OpenOffice.org suite that I took flak for calling vaporware four years ago — doesn’t mean it isn’t vaporware.
Maybe OmniFocus is going to be a nice app like OmniOutliner or OmniGraffle. Maybe it’s going to be a complex, over-engineered, over-designed turd like OmniPlan. But today, it’s vaporware.
And I’ve got to call bullshit on the idea that Omni’s decision to pre-announce OmniFocus wasn’t at least partially for competitive reasons. Competitive doesn’t necessarily imply nefarious, but it’s disingenuous to pretend it wasn’t competitive at all.
