    Yes Steve,very strange

    Think they want the world to believe it's a startup
    Guess that's why the xara.com site is the way it is and also why all referrences to any desktopversion is buried.
    No more money to get from there I suppose

    Totally bemusing. There is never any mention that XC is compatible with the Desktop applications and that they are effectively bonded.

    Why worry?

    If they f** that up it has no consequences for the DT version is that what you mean?(or did you forget the <sarcasm></sarcasm> tag? )
    On the other hand no marketing money will be spent either to give the DT version the limelight it deserves

    they aren't bonded in the corporate sense... [except in the sense they are both [preumably] part of the 'magix group']... which is the whole point, because the 'startup': Xara GmbH', bsed in Berlin, is a limited company seperate from The Xara Group Ltd' based in Gaddesdon; so if one fails it does not impact on the other at the corporate level [ie not liable for each others debt] - the other side of that coin thouigh is will the success of one benefit the other?

    also it means that the businesses that Xara GmbH wish to attract as customers/clients do not [necessarily] see the history of Xara Group Ltd - 'clean break'

    be interesting to know who is employed by both companies and in what capacity

    Dang, that "start up" has been taking my money for a decade
    Xara GmbH is the startup, soley responsible for Xara Cloud
    Xara Group Ltd remain as responsible for the desktop development, or so we are assured...

    following through we find this:

    Today millions of people around the world use Xara to create stunning content, collaborate with colleagues, and grow their business. Xara is a VC funded company, has 50+ employees, and with headquarters in Berlin and an R&D office in London
    presumably the R&D office is at Gaddesden, which is not actually in London, but close emough for some... ?

    [VC = venture capital]

    One thing strikes me is the fact that Matt shows his presence here at the forum but conveniently does not react to this statement he did make on the net.
