Hello. I am considering to buy the Educational version of Adobe CS5 Production Premium (mainly using Illustrator but once in a while photoshop and Premiere). How is the Mac version of Photoshop compared with the Windows version? Is it better or the same? If you know of differences of illustrator and Premiere as well, please let me know. Thanks.
There are none except for the specific operating system quirks like having the ability to see "through" Photoshop to your desktop on the mac or being able to scroll through the various blend modes with the scroll wheel of your mouse on windows.
Photoshop's functionality is identical on both platforms.
You can even "roll up" the application frame if you like that annoying Mac look.
