I still don't get how people confuse a piece of software with a computer either.
Most the people I talk to that love their MAC always bring up an application that makes it great.
...every single one of them has a pc equivalent now...

Windows 7 64-bit

I guess I'm guilty but let me explain. A few years ago I was itching to get a new computer. I was pretty fed up with XP, heard nothing but negatives. My Mac-oholic :) son had been bugging me for years to get a Mac. So then he offered me his older version of Photoshop which was Mac software (Adobe allows ownership transfers). This pushed me over the edge. So, I purchased an iMac & have since upgraded to CS5 Extended. I do own other software for this Mac like Bibble & others.

I have since built a new PC with Windows 7 & think MS did this one right. If I could transfer Adobe software from Mac to PC I would.

Ha, I seriously have no clue, I don't think we used it for color. We used it at the college newspaper in the late 1980s, which was a daily but I can't remember publishing anything in color. I was in media for a while, and I think the gap between Macs and MS (in regard to PS) started closing about 7-8 years ago? You find places today who still swear by Macs for graphics, but they simply don't have the edge they used to.

I have a question to ask. Every mac person I've ever talked to always say that they use it mostly for PhotoShop. A desktop that's over 2,000 dollars for PhotoShop is to me, politically insane. Is PhotoShop honestly better on a mac?
No, I don't believe so. As others have already said, maybe before Win 7 but not now. I was given Photoshop CS3 in Mac & wound up buying an iMac for it along with some other software. I considered going 100% Mac until I priced video editing software, like Final Cut Pro @ a grand in price, then decided to upgrade my old XP to Windows 7 64-bit & keep using my original video editing software. I liked Win 7 so much I recently built a new PC.
