I also respect your support for the MariaDB project - keep up with the good work guys!

SQLyog is very much a "Windows API"-based program. The Windows API is used for almost anything (GUI controls, networking, file system access) and to replace the Windows API in SQLyog code with Unix-type libraries is more than a 50% rewrite of the program code (and there will be lot of small fixes to do afterwards - painting issues, memory issues etc.).
SQLyog in its current from represents (my best estimate) around 20 man-years of work. We cannot invest 5 or 10 man-years into a project if there is little chance that it 'pays off'.

Speaking about customers - it is very simple to make a poll about it here - get users' feedbacks on this matter, and discover for yourself how many people would pay! I have an impression (no offense) that You still live in the era of business-individuals who thought "Windows = money&business, Linux/UNIX = students&enthusiasts&researchers". May I humbly remind you how wrong you are in that case?
Again, I am speaking from a *paying* customer's perspective.

So, SqlYog does work under WINE (which is how we use it). It's not so pretty and it bugs us sometimes, but it remains effective. Much as I'd prefer to use it natively, and we'd certainly pay for that if it were available, but more important is that it just continues to work and evolve as a key component in our design and development tool box, and that we don't hang a heavy development and maintenance weight around Peter's neck.

In past posts, Peter has indicated that there is no point in attempting to port the project without having any idea if anyone will pay for it. I've had a reminder set for the last 2 years to kick off a website trying to get others to commit to paying for SQLYog on Mac. Obviously, I've never gotten around to this.
How about Webyog setting up a KickStarter project for porting SQLYog to the Mac? You'd get a lot of interest in SQLYog for Windows this way. You'd also get REAL validation that developers will pay for porting SQLYog to the Mac. In fact, you'd get the project paid for in advance!
