    Are you using the Mac or Windows version, (via Bootcamp/Fusion)?

    Which version is better to buy, Mac or Windows?

    If you read in the adobe user forums it seems a lot of Mac users buy Adobe Suites in the Windows version and run it via Bootcamp?

    Or, am I mistaken?

    I'm about to order CS4 Design Premium and I want to make sure I order what's easiest to learn and best to use.

    I have Maser Collection CS4 and run both Photoshop and Illustrator daily.....everything runs smoothly

    I do not have windows installed on my iMac

    A few people I know have Master Collection for PC, i've used it a few times, and I don't know....just something about it doesn't feel right. I think I like the individual windows in the Mac version, and thats why I have a hard time. It's strange, I feel much more productive when using the Mac version.

    As far as performance, I'd say the Mac version is more stable / snappier....yet again I am not testing these both on the same exact machine, so I am not the best candidate to give that assumption :p

    The Windows version is 64bit and the Mac only 32bit, which is a shame.
    If you use big files, that will make a difference.

    I myself use the Mac Version of CS4, my school uses Macs for that so that's why I got the Mac one.
