Yep, SF is PC only. Actually, the PC end of things is much better than
it used to be. Can't say I've had sync or other issues with a PC running
good software and a properly set up PC with enough horsepower... But
then, that's just me.

Isn't Soundforge PC only?

Here's one item for your arsenal: there are excellent peices of software
written, or sometimes optimized, for MacOS. Digital Performer and other
MOTU (Mark of the Unicorn) products are a good example. Most A/V/MIDI
software that run on PC's also run on MacOS - I've never seen a software
title become popular unless it is MacOS compatible.

Dear Colleagues -

I'm at war with my supervisor on the subject of Macs vs. PCs when it
comes to digitizing analog audio & video.  He has a bias against Mac,
while all my periodical & on-line research, plus many consultations with
colleagues in media archiving, broadcasting and production, clearly
indicates that Mac is the strongly preferred system.

Please send ammunition.  Especially if you can quantify in $$$ and/or
lost productivity.  All apocryphal stories welcome.
