I am a PC user but I really like Powerbook and I am seriously thinking about getting a mac (probably Powerbook) next time I get a computer. There are many pirated copies of softwares for PC and lots of PC users don't pay for certain programs. Is it same for Mac users? Did you buy all your programs? My concern with switching to Mac is that I might not be able to use some Adobe programs - Photoshop, Pagemaker...etc- on Mac. And I am not sure if I can afford to buy those programs and spend hundreds of dollars.
