The latest poll asking users their reasons for switching from ChemDraw to ChemDoodle has closed with interesting results. The main reasons for the switch were ChemDoodle’s much lower price (76%), that copy and paste works on Mac OS X (60%), and free updates (56%). The remaining options of linux support, easy learning curve, support for small chemistry departments/small businesses, more features, and excellent customer service were all clustered around 30%, and are therefore also worthy reasons.

We are dedicated to providing the highest quality chemical drawing and publishing tools to everyone that needs them on all platforms and at an incredibly low and very affordable price. The support we have received has far exceeded our expectations and we will make sure that there is credible and stable competition in this industry. Our new poll is up to the right.
