Multi-plataform LiveJournal client.

Multi-plataform LiveJournal client.

Short, concise description of the idea
Create an official, multi-plataform client, that is regularly updated (or as often as it needs to be anyway).

Full description of the idea
Realistically, the only LJ client that is frequently updated is Semagic. And it is primarily Windows-based (yes, I know it can be used on Macs as well, but not without another third-party application, and some rather complicated fiddling to boot). Clients for Mac are suffering from a severe development draught; I can scarcely imagine what it is like for Linux users. So I was wondering earlier today if LJ themselves couldn't develop a multi-plataform client for us to use, regardless of which OS we operate with. I've just realised this myself, what with my purchase of a Mac, when I didn't really like any of the available clients, and I thought there would be a very slim chance any of those would be updated soon. Maybe having it as an open source, we can have various people pinching in with new ideas and whatnot.

An ordered list of benefits
  • Being a multi-plataform software, pretty much everyone use it.
  • Frequent updates to the client. Rarer chances of it being obsolete.
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • None! Or so I'd like to think...
