    hello until now i've been programming and designing webpages in windows. I will be buying a macbook pro now because of work. So i need a license of dreamweaver but i'm not sure if i should buy the windows license or mac os license, i'm concerned about mac os not working with asp service. Is there any way to overcome this? thank you

    Edit: I don't mind working in windows bootcamp on my mac but if i can avoid that, good...

    i'm not a big web guy, but i've HEARD (only heard) that DW in OS X isn't the hottest thing on the block. I don't know if it's true or not, as I don't spend much time there.

    Are you buying it as part of a suite? Do you like to use the other components in any particular OS? I've used the suites across various OSs for years and my personal breakdown by package is:
    Master Collection: Mac
    Design Std/Prm: Mac
    Web: Windows
    Production: Toss up , prefer Windows.

    Which one do you actually use more for that kind of thing?

    Put quite simply, for me, I would choose whatever system I am more comfortable with and actually use more. For example, it can be MADDENING to make the constant switch between CNTL-C and CMD-C for something simple like copy/pasting, which you do quite a bit with web development.

    Maybe I'm old school, but I've never liked Dreamweaver.

    I do all of my web coding via BBEdit, pico, or nano.
