    Windows and Mac Compatablility/license??


      Why can lightroom be installed from the same disk to both mac and windows, but photoshop has to use a different disc/install for either mac or windows?


      Im curious only because i run both lightroom and photoshop on my macbook pro, but i am about done with a pc/windows desktop build and would like to use them on it too. However, it seems i would only be able to use lightroom and would have to purchase a windows version of photoshop. I currently have lightroom 3 and photoshop cs5, and i want to upgrade. I know you can have them installed on a laptop and a desktop with one license (from what i understand), but would i really have to buy a windows version as well as a mac version of photoshop? has it changed with cs6?


      may seem dumb, but im curious.
