Bernina Embroidery software for Macs?

Are there any plans to release a mac version of Bernina's embroidery software in the near future?
I am aware that I can run the software through Boot Camp (and probably Parallels) but I am fed up with Windows altogether.

Even though I have 2 Bernina embroidery machines, I am considering purchasing Husqvarna Viking's TruEmbroidery 3 program recently released for macs. If Bernina actually has plans to come out with their own mac compatible version, then I am willing to wait a short time for that. Please advise! Thank you!

Yes, Bernina did respond to me by email saying that they have NO plans to make their embroidery software available directly for macs! So I did buy TruEmbroidery 3 that afternoon and LOVE not having to deal with Windows anymore! The only drawback...and I don't even think it's a drawback...is that you cannot use the "send directly to sewing machine" option. But I never do regardless of which embroidery program I use (I also have Generations, but it too is Windows-based). I merely save the design I'm using and then copy and paste it to the USB stick that I use to plug into my Bernina! So no more Windows-Parallels frustrations of any kind. By the way, I believe it's on sale now too!
