I wasn't sure what section to post this in- anyway I thought this would be important for all the apple cultists who always say, well I don't know why you'd want to run windows on a mac, mac os has all the software you need. - Well the truth is they don't not for me anyway. I'm sure some of you out there have heard of Autodesk. http://usa.autodesk.com/ Autodesk is the worlds reliance of among other titles AutoCad. This software is a standard around the world, besides AutoCad their other software titles are standards as well, dealing with mechanical engineering based platforms that I use, or architecture, topographical cartography, oh yah- I'm sure you've heard of 3ds Max too. If your thinking about a virtual pc type emulation- think again because the software is requires the number crunching that an emulator just can't provide. Now as much as I'd love Autodesk to make their products run natively in Mac OS, they have obviously not found the Mac market to be a big enough niche to make it cost effective. I also do alot of work with digital music, and for this my hardware and software is great on the native mac os environment. I'm sorry Apple, until Autodesk conforms, you will not satisfy. I hope this sheds some light on you super mac-enthusiasts, i'd be glad to field any questions you may have.
