Question by sushiis4me: I bought adobe cs4 for a pc but want to buy a mac so will it work?
I heard that a mac uses adobe cs4 more efficiently so I do not want to use boot camp (might as well stick with a pc) and I heard that crossover does not work with adobe cs4.

No, it will not. You have purchased a Windows version. Windows software is not compatible with Mac OS X and the other way around. You will need to purchase a Mac OS X version.

  1. I don’t know about efficiency, but I know design professionals often prefer Macs for their superior graphics capabilities. I don’t think you can use software for PC/Mac interchangably, however.

  2. It will only work under Windows. You’ll need to either purchase the Mac version of the software or install Windows on your Mac. You might see if Parallels works with CS4.

  3. Out of the box, no. You can call Adobe, select the option for sales, tell them what you want to do and they will walk you through the rest of the crossgrade process. You won’t have to pay anything additional.
