    Bootcamp and CS3 question...

    shooternz Level 6
      Anyone using Bootcamp (Mac) and XP Pro and CS3....does it work?

      I am considering it and would like to hear your experience (pros /cons etc)

          hmmmm... no one seems to be into it!

          I asked a few local editors and puter techs and they are really digging Bootcamp. Even a local NLE builder is suggesting this route as opposed to building PCs.

          I am going to do it anyway. The advantage of a high performance 64 bit Mac and Windows with CS3. I cant wait.... Best of both worlds.

            That presumes there's something good about the Mac world.

              Matter of fact is there is... but it requires an open mind and a paradigm adjustment to get it.

              I have been down the track of PC Suites, then a Mac Suite then a Hybrid Suite ( FCP and CS3 in the Mac suite).

              Worked out I can save a lot of grief and bother by running the Hybrid suite on a Windows platform via Bootcamp. I am at heart and soul a "windows guy" and Premieres biggest fan.

              This concept maintains PC and Mac capability when I need it and my many legacy projects will be easier to access. Plus many of the talented people / artists I collaborate with are 'Mac fiends' and still having that capabilty in my suites for them is an advantage.

                "Most" folks seem to have installed Paradigm Shift Blocking Software (PSBS)
                i in
                their systems. And because of its very nature, any subsequent updates to the PSBS itself are also shunned.

                Keep Smiling

                  (I was just kidding. I do know the world of digital content creation leans very heavily towards Macs. But I still like to bust on Mac users.)

                    Hey Jim - to let the rest of us in on your jokes, you need to use smileys!

                    It only makes you look a little stupid and goofy, and it's entertaining for the textually-challenged among us.

                    :) :D ;)

                    (See? I used smileys and now you know I'm just kidding.)

                      I thought HTML was off, and they wouldn't work. Man I just wish things would go back to normal.

                        I do my best to ignore my many 'Mac-nazi' friends one-eyed view of the world of computers. They have their Paradigm Shift Blocking Software (PSBS) turned to high.

                        Its just the way they live....

                        Funny thing is 25% of them are copywriters (word wranglers) and can not even get an animated gif to show in their emails yet they run the latest and greatest Mac notebooks. I in turn bombard them with gifs and that annoys the sh*t out of them.
