Windows only software that u wish were available on the macintosh platform!
Autodesk in the previous year released AutoCAD, an important cad software that was windows only, and it works great in macintosh
personally i wish 3ds max should be out for macintosh, 3ds max an awesome 3d app
i know for sure great apps like alias design, maya were developed native for the mac, what is ur wishlist from windows environment.
Also most importantly what do u feel about the current 3d graphics capabilities in mac systems, what needs to be done to make them compete to hard core gaming windows system, bec only gaming computer specs allows u to use these serious 3d apps in a favourable capacity, not just graphic design which mac is famous for
i think mac should reach out to that platform of seriousness, now is the time, what are ur thoughts guys?

guys lets also not forget when we praise awesome designs from amazing Johny Ive from apple we tend to ignore that none such serious applications for design, engineering and simulations are currently present in mac...
i m damn sure there are tonnes of windows pc's used for designing those beautiful products, hence we should always respect windows in this regards
it is this kind of seriousness and kind of unfilled gaps that i want from apple to fulfill, and stand up and match the real pc capabilities not cutsy "graphic design only stuff" which every average pc is capable of doing!
hm think about it, for mac still is a long way to go in terms of pro market

I guess mostly games really, I'm not using a lot of software but I think it's more the OS itself that needs to steal some ideas from Windows. Mainly the customization parts. Also I want to tweak the OS for optimum performance E.G getting rid of the unnecessary bells and whistles to make the battery last longer. Also drivers and the programs you get with the hardware are often very lacky on osX. For instance I can't install MSI Afterburner because it doesn't exist, so I can't overclock my graphics card. I can't overclock the CPU, FSB.. anything really which is a big drawback since most of the hardware is downclocked.

For one would be native support for most if not all the current retail games available on the market. If this was actually achievable right now, I'd actually be one step closer to buying a Mac. But as it stands right now, I don't see the point in buying a 1.5k Mac just to buy a copy of Windows and install it via bootcamp and then play my games. It's just not logical if you look at it from the viewpoint of a budget-minded person as myself.
Yes, I'm a gamer. Mac and gaming don't mix well.
