In his new book “Illustrator CS for Dummies,” Ted Alspach, Adobe’s Group Product Manager for Illustration Products, advises new computer buyers to get a PC: “As of 2003, Windows systems have taken a decisive lead over Macs when it comes to performance. The difference is most apparent with graphics applications such as Photoshop and Illustrator, but you”ll notice it with other applications as well. If you?’re thinking of purchasing a new system, and speed and responsiveness is important (or at least more important than the feel of the OS, I suggest getting a zippy PC over a (comparably) sluggish Mac“. This is not the first time Adobe (Apple’s #1 third party software house) pushes its customers towards the PC. The previous time it ended with Apple’s PR firing back at Adobe through the media.
