mistral logo 125x170 Established in 1984 MISTRAL is proud to be widely considered the 'generic' software system provider for the refrigeration & air conditioning industry. In its domestic market, Mistral software is used by more than 85% of refrigeration & air conditioning contracting firms and programs have been distributed to over 17,000 users in over 100 countries around the world.

A truly auspicious event has taken place at Mistral. After years of continuous research and development and following extensive field trials Mistral is pleased to announce that its expert system computer programs are no longer dependent solely upon Microsoft Windows computer operating systems in order for them to work.

Put briefly. Mistral programs can at last now be installed and work quite normally on both Apple Macintosh computers and also computers using Linux based operating systems.

Why is this such an auspicious event? Even for people having no intention (at least for the time being) of switching from a PC* to an alternative type of computer or computer operating system.

At risk of stating the obvious. Mistral considers Microsoft's clear monopoly over users of their Windows computer operating systems amounting to near tyrannical abuse. From libellous on-screen statements about the vast majority of the world's professional software developers (in other words all but those who pay annual fees to have such defamatory statements removed and therefore nothing less than a 'Protection Racket') - to the constant stream of obligatory, invasive and disruptive, largely totally unnecessary 'critical updates' that interfere with peoples' lives and with business operations. Any new or modified existing software which challenges Microsoft's stranglehold can only be seen as a good thing. For everyone!

Naturally Mistral will continue to support users of Microsoft Windows computer operating systems. Mistral will continue investing a substantial proportion of its revenue from your licence fees in meeting Microsoft's constant stream of new challenges and threats to its wholly legitimate software development operations.

Now though we have a choice. And so do you!

Bringing the benefits of computerisation to our industry - without the historically associated problems.
