    Another question that may not be 'technically' technical....I'm about to
    swap my PC for a Mac (I know, too soon old, too late smart), and I have
    CS4, ready to upgrade to CS5....if I buy CS5, can I get just the upgrade
    even though switching platforms, or do I have to start over? I've had
    every version since Photoshop 4 and I kinda like saving the money.
    Anybody know Adobe's policy on this? Thanks in advance.

    I'm sure someone who knows for sure will answer this for you, but... seems
    like I have said at times (somewhere) I'd love to get a MAC but I have all
    these programs, like PS that are for Windows, and someone said MACs will now
    run Windows programs.
    I will probably never get a MAC unless I win a lottery. I just occasionally
    say it when I've had problems with a virus, or get annoyed by Windows (or
    Dell) stuff.
    I was googling it and found some answers, but not sure if they apply. If
    you can run Windows (for programs) on a MAC (the newer ones, maybe) that
    might work.
    I found info here:

  3. Adobe offers a cross platform upgrade. Ask them for the details.

  4. Instead of emulating a 'fair' version of windos on a mac, why not install a
    mac emulator on Win 7?

    See SoftMac and Gemulator.

    Of course you -=could=- throw away all your PC programs and pay extra for
    'genuine mac'!
