    What alternatives beat Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign? I'm asking that as a serious question, not as an Adobe apologist. Or are you saying that Adobe's software for OSX isn't as good as its Windows counterparts?

    Adobe software is superior on the PC than on OSX in recent years. Most all of broadcast radio runs on Windows. More and more of the recording studio is going PC.

    GIMP can replace photoshop, but I am not sure if they have a apple version. You can even use photoshop brushes in it. If you are already use to photoshop I have seen a skin for it that makes it look like photoshop and re-arranges the buttons so it's in the same place as photoshop.

    Ehhhhh, no. No way Jose. GIMP is awesome for free software, but compared to Photoshop it is a pile of hot garbage.

    Exactly. It is a case of the Windows 7/8 versions of Adobe CS6 and CC being far more stable and feature rich than the OSX versions. version 5 was about the end of Adobe products being more or less on par on both operating systems.

    this was one of the reasons I was forced to more or less abandon a small fortune in Apple hardware and Adobe OSX software licences a couple years ago. The windows versions were FAR superior and MUCH more productive in my workflow. ( I spent 27 years as a hard core Apple girl )

    And Apple MacBook build quality is embarrasingly bad. Fragile origami bad. Too much double sided sticky tape used, too easily hot when stressed.
