    Unfortunately it's true. Mac's and PC's have very similar software. How did Macs get the 'creativity' connotation anyway? I've been following the Mac world for only 2 years so I really don't know.

    this guy really doesn't have a firm understanding of the subject matter.

    theres plenty of things he left out of comparison, not least of which is the extremely better way macs handle ram.

    viruses?


    everyone I know in design, photography, and multimedia uses a mac. enough said.

    They have always been used by creative people and have been marketed towards the creative market since the early 90s. Photoshop was originally written for the Mac - it wasn't originally called Photoshop.

    It is not "unfortunate" that Macs and PCs have similar software - it is a neccessity. It makes transfering files cross platform much easier. It also makes working in a cross platform environment much easier.

    The Mac was originally designed as a computer for the home user - it still is.

    Andrew - the actual writter of the article - is a Photoshop studio guy who works with photographers all day on a custom built PC so he thinks like a PC builder/user - not a Mac user.

    Too be fair, in the brief time he saw the Mac, 'over coffee,' his observations would be limited to what he saw/was/shown.

    He also mentioned in the article that he was amazed by what he was shown in that short space of time and that he was shown how to do things that he had previously thought were not possible or just didn't know how to do which is a fairly common misconception amoung PC users.
