Virtual DJ for...
Topic: Virtual DJ for Chrome OS
Now in these days there is a new software for laptops that is not only conquering the market due to high performance but also for cheap prices. This is Chrome OS powered by Google. Sadly Virtual DJ is not available in Chrome OS. This means that Virtual DJ is losing thousands of potential clients that want to DJ but also need a cheap high performence laptop. Other DJ software programs have already put their softwares in Chrome OS. Eventhough none of them are as good as Virtual DJ people are using those DJ softwares which means Virtual DJ is losing thousands of dollars.
So will you make Virtual DJ available in Chrome OS

I also doubt that people who are forced to buy a cheap laptop, and therefore choose a Chromebook, are willing to pay $299 for a DJ software to put on their cheap laptop
Another issue with Chromebooks are that they are designed to be online. They can do some things offline, including holding some files. But DJs needs to be able to DJ entirely offline
So if Atomix were to port VDJ to a third platform, I think a Unix platform, like maybe Ubuntu, would be a smarter choice than Chrome OS

Traktor, Serato, Rekordbox (those are the "big three")? I don't think so.
If "thousands of DJs" were desperate to use a cheap laptop to DJ with (which I doubt, if they have professional standards) then why aren't those programs available for Chrome OS?
