A flurry of activity the past few days shows how important the blogosphere can be when an issue affects a lot of people.  I originally posted about the Copernic Desktop Search problem working on Tablet PCs days ago and ranted about the software company’s position that they can’t test CDS on a Tablet because they don’t have one and have no intention of getting one.  The blogosphere reacted to that in a uniform fashion as often happens in cases like this with Marc Orchant of The Tablet PC Weblog joining in the discussion in total agreement with my position.  Marc’s post was in turn picked up by numerous other websites and a flurry of activity has ensued today.  I have heard directly from the Copernic co-founder, Martin Bouchard, CEO David Burns, and finally VP of Technology Albert Dang-Vu.  All three gentlemen expressed the commitment of Copernic to get a Tablet PC and test the program and more importantly to fix it for Tablet owners. 

This has been reported on numerous websites already so this will be my next to last post on the CDS subject.  Albert Dang-Vu has reported to me that the TIP flicker problem has been fixed and will appear in the next release.  Kudos to Copernic for stepping up to the plate and addressing the situation in a professional manner.  The last post I will make on this subject will be to report when a fixed version has been released.

  1. Nice. Glad to see the company take a positive stance on this issue – I’ll be trying the program out soley due to this when the fix is released.

    Yay for the blog network (I refuse to call it the blogosphere for numerous reasons)! :D

  2. Hey, I know! Maybe you guys can get Microsoft and a bunch of OEMs to advertise and publicize the tablet PC! I’m thinking a few blogs from you guys could really shake things up. What about it guys?

  3. I am not using a tablet PC, so I don’t know anything about problems with such a set-up. But I do know that for Windows XP it is the best desktop search tool around (and I have tried all the competitors!).

  4. I used to be an avid of Copernic, I now use a program I found on MSN Sandbox called Lookout and have been relatively happy with it(it performs index searches of my files and emails @ http://www.lookoutsoft.com/Lookout/download.html). It is good to see such a great and quick response from a comany. It shows they really care about their product. I may switch back when the fixed version is released.

  5. Just relieved an email from Copernic. They sent me a link to the newest build, and I am happy to say the issue seems to be resolved.

    Thanks Copernic!
