What has changed?

Tiger Technologies once created well-known software programs like Holiday Lights, DeskFlag, Window Monkey and Menuette.

However, we stopped creating, updating and selling those software programs many years ago. (Our company now focuses on providing Web hosting and domain name services instead.)

Will there be updates to the old programs for compatibility with Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, or Mac OS X?

No. Rewriting the old software for compatibility with newer operating systems would take substantial time and effort, unfortunately. We're sorry about that.

A final note of thanks

We'd like to thank everyone who downloaded our software programs over the years. The continued growth of our Web hosting business has changed our company into something much larger and very different, but some of us still remember the days when someone could say “Wouldn't it be neat if you could put Christmas tree lights around the edge of your computer screen?” and we'd actually have time to do it. We enjoyed it, and we'll miss it.
