Hey guys, not looking to start a row between diehard Mac/diehard PC fans, but lately everyone I meet tells me that Mac's are better than PC's when it comes to running music software/doing audio production, etc. especially in the professional world. They say that Mac's are more stable and reliable. Of course I stop my ears and sing "La la la la la la la...can't hear you...la la la la la la la!" everytime someone tells me this as I have much already invested in the PC world, not to mention all my music software programs (Finale, Cubase, Gigastudio, NI products, GPO, GOS, etc.). I know Mac's are supposed to have better visual graphics, but is it really true that they are also better when it comes to audio? I must admit my present system, Windows XP (Home), does tend to get frozen/crash quite a bit and I am presently in the process of looking to get a new system as mine is a few years old now and can't really be upgraded without installing an entire new motherboard/processor, etc. But the thought of going over to "the other side" seemed a very unlikely option for me as, as I mentioned, all my programs/files are formatted for PC. And then a ray of light appeared...someone told me that they are now making Mac's with the ability to read PC formatted programs. Is this true? (Forgive me, I am not that computer savvy and do not know a whole lot about what they can and cannot do these days.) If this is true, would a Mac even be able to read my myriads of PC formatted music files or would I have to start all over from scratch were I to take the plunge and venture over to "the other side"? Any thoughts--especially from those who work in the professional music arena with either Mac or PC--would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
