The idea that Macs (by which we mean OS X, really) are better for creative work is quite a common one, but I never really gave it much thought until I met someone who worked for a local Sysco plant as an IT guy specializing in Macs. He was hired to maintain and troubleshoot the 6 or so Macs used by the graphic designers they keep on staff. The rest of the office uses Windows machines, and there's obviously the regular IT department dedicated to them. I thought to myself, "Gee, isn't that a little excessive?" I mean, all of the Adobe apps have had Windows versions for ages, and it seems like a waste to spend all that extra money on buying Macs and hiring a special IT guy. Furthermore, Logic Pro is such a joke that most audio guys use Pro Tools (yep, there's a Windows version). Same story with Dreamweaver for web design. The only exception I can think of is pro video, where Final Cut takes a big chunk of the market (even though there a lot of people using Premiere Pro too, which again comes in a Windows version). So I ask, what big advantage for creative types am I missing? Is there anything to this claim or is it just a myth? Looking forward to your comments.
