very cool stuff! I think they made it a bit too complex than what's really necessary, realistic brush simulation is a bit too much imo, but I guess that's the easiest way to wow people :).

Heh people say Photoshop runs a lot better on Mac than on Windows... still the brush stokes in that video seem pretty slow to me. I wonder how slow this will be on windows.

i would disregard that as rumors honestly. i don't think they actually made photoshop more memory friendly on mac, just because it's a mac.

Adobe doesn't even make 64 bit versions of their software for mac, not to mention by buying a $3000 mac pro you still end up with an $150 nvidia gt120 card.

This is especially important since cs now supports parallel processing.

I'm really tired of the "macs are better for graphics!" touted by mac evangelists.

I still can't wait to get my hands on this... I'm so tired of GIMP.

Adobe creates their software primarily for Mac and then port to Windows afaik.

I used Adobe software on Macs for like three years and in all honesty I noticed no performance difference at all between that and my similarly specced PC. In fact, everything I used on a Mac was pretty much the same both in speed and function. It's like comparing an apple to an orange: you eat them differently but they're both sweet and quite good for you.

However it's so much cheaper to build a PC that can demolish a similarly priced Mac it's pretty much a no-brainer to go with Windows, especially with GPUs becoming increasingly significant for stuff like Photoshop.
