You Software founded
Craig Barnes, the founder of , to develop and market a complete line of productivity software that will "fundamentally make the Mac OS X software you already own (such as operating systems and applications) easier to use and customize, so your computer works the way you want it to work. In the next 90 days, You Software will ship several titles designed for Mac OS X. These initial System Enhancement Utilities are focused on the real world needs of users and make using Mac OS X faster, easier and more efficient."
"You System Enhancements add features, enable customization and give users more control over the power of their operating system. You System Enhancements will be delivered both as stand-alone products and in collections of utilities. In addition, over the next 12 months the company will also introduce client/server offerings that will bring You Software productivity gains to networked workgroups."
Like Extensis and Now Software before it, the You Software product development strategy combines internally developed products with both publishing arrangements and acquisitions of independently developed products and technologies. Earlier this year You Software acquired the intellectual property assets of PTH Software, a developer of system utilities that have been consistently recognized as best of class for the Macintosh operating system.
