    • IE is discontinued for MAC and even though I use Firefox, I like to see what the majority of the world sees.
      WYSISWG editors among others do not always work well on MACS
      I can compare on both machines on multiple browsers.

      Not as much of an issue today as it was previous years

      why pc for joomla?

      can anyone answer ... why would mac have issues with joomla?

      also, using a mac - if you see an image that you like and you can't right click to save it how do you save it??

      As for Joomla on a Mac, it works fine. But it's a bit of work. You have to download and install MySQL and edit the htconfig file to get PHP working. Those are both straightforward but somewhat of a pain. Also, the default installation has to be tweaked to allow .htaccess files. So it's not really worth setting up search engine friendly URL's. But on a development server that's not really important. Or you can download MAMP, and drop it in your applications folder and use that complete Apache/MySQL/PHP installation, which does allow .htaccess out of the box.

      I'm actually running both simultaneously, the MAMP with PHP 5 and Apache 2, to get comfortable. My default installation looks pretty much like Dreamhost, the company I host with.

      Instead of right click, use the control key, or just click and hold for a second to bring up the contextual menu.

      However the lack of a split click pad sucks. It is one of the few things that Apple really does wrong. They finally put out a right-clickable mouse but it took years after the capacity was built into the OS.

    • And we're still awaiting the Mac-Flower-Power-running-as-doped-on-epo-17" laptop!! :)

      I can't think of any valid reason on why they haven't released a 17" version.........seems to me as an akward step back?

      Right,
      12 inch for on the go and
      a bigger screen at home.
      If I can find the money! :) :)
