You can expect it some time in 2011 most likely. Especially since the Mac version has to be completely rewritten from the ground up using Cocoa. Course, you could always get a Vista machine. :P

But seriously, Adobe apps, even CS3, run so much better for me on Vista x64 (yes, I run a 64-bit machine), than they do on my MacBook (Leopard). This coming from a professional designer.

I use both Mac and PCs every day, but I do my design and development work on a PC, as it has better performance, usability and customizability overall, than the Mac, in most cases (the exception being TextMate, which has still yet to see a decent clone of on the big W).

The thing Apple has going for itself is a sexy look (which can indeed be inspirational for designers), and its simplicity. But it's the latter that I don't care for too much. I'm a fiend for customization, productivity and easy access. I like lots of buttons, shortcuts, setting configurations and the ability to make my digital life simpler myself. I want to create new shortcuts and workflows that don't yet exist, if such a means is possible. And I don't want to spend a lot of time doing so. This is where Win wins.

Apple has certainly come a long way since the early days, though, and they have done well in bringing about the features that I feel are vital in a computer, while maintaining that simple look, feel and functionality. But there's still a lot to be desired in OS X (for me anyway). Especially in the area of usability.

But don't start an OS war with me, my flamethrower is being upgraded at the moment. ;) ...I'll just say that both OS's are a long way off from perfection, and both have their frustrations. I just have more of those frustrations on Macs, though I've been using them longer than I have PCs. So if I had to choose only one? ... Linux it is!

...er, no. Not really. :)
