    I use a macbook pro for work but my job foolishly bought dreamweaver for windows.

    So I was wondering if you guys knew of any good open source alternatives to dreamweaver.

    I know I could install parallels but I don't feel like blowing money right now and I need an immidate solution.

    similarly i know using dreamweaver sucks, but I'm not good at coding and need a somewhat immediate solution.

    There is no good alternative to dreamweaver. Did they "Just" buy it? if so give adobe a call, and say that you have "just bought a mac" and was wondering if you can convert your license to run both on windows and on mac, "A universal serial".

    I had to call, and I got charged 150 USD for the conversion only because I did not have CS3.3 Version, but if they just bought it, then it should be no problem.

    I'd thought about this and didn't know if there was such a thing was possible. It is the cs3 version so I'll give this a shot.

    There is a windows app called Kompozer that is a good alternative.

    Eh, not a powerful application though. Its for like a 2 page personal webpage. It also doesn't deal with dynamic languages like PHP, ASP, .NET, JSP, and coldfusion.

    Kompozer also has a knack for writing invalid html.

    I think Adobe has a policy that will allow you to essentially convert your license from one to the other. If you are a legitimate owner of the software, regardless of purchase, I believe you can pay a certain amount and get the new software for the correct OS. If you did just buy it though then I would certainly see if they can't waive the fee.
