No real problems with it! I'm running the latest version and have been running it in one form or another since I got my RevA Macbook over a year ago.

Only time I had any issues at all were when I was trying experimental Vista stuff which seems ironed out now anyway. I've never seen a kernel panic, and it's never damaged my bootcamp partition. And I use it almost every day.. Hmm.

Talk about a load of old stick-in-the-muds.. :)

I've not had any issues with 6, and it's functionally not that different to 5 - I mean, these are minor interface things & rearrangement which shouldn't take more than a few minutes of adjustment.

If anything it would benefit from more radical change.. But enough people have made that point already!

The main thing I'd like to see is buffing up of the edit features - the framework is all there.. All it needs is a few tweaks and added features and GC would be excellent for pixel graphics (once you can manipulate layers & animation frames better)

Lemke seem right to concentrate on the conversion features - it does incredibly well for that, but I've converted everything I have now, so better image creation would be nice too. ;)

Pixen seems dead.. If GC could pick up the "affordable pixel graphics app" flag that would really be something. :)

Well.. WOW. Finally after 2 CS versions which had little to no features that helped me over those in 7, along comes CS3 (well, almost!) which tonnes of stuff I *really* wanted.

Universal is a biggie, but there are a load of other things too like a nice new selection system. A definite update for me. :)

Erp. Does anyone have a URL for the Parallels tools for Bootcamp? In the readme it says to download it from their page from within XP and I can't find it..

I deleted my file-based VM to use the Bootcamp mode and save HD space. Oops. :D

Excellent. Maybe if enough people download this Smultron's creator will at least give people this option in the preferences.. And maybe acknowledge that his icons are a bit off.

Even if these aren't resolution independant, they're a lot prettier.. And more importantly, they look like icons which belong in an osX application.

I love this.. It really has sped up my downloads dramatically (on a 1MB cable connection)

For those who want a simpler download window - I don't see why the app doesn't let you disable the left hand column.. I have many of the features turned off so i don't really need it there. (is there some way to disable it which I've missed?)

Other than that though I can't think what else I'd change.

Well.. Wow! What an odd update. The only thing which concerns me as a negative is the interface. Looking a little weird now! I miss the aqua scrollbars etc, but I'll reserve judgement until I see where Apple's going with this.

I've not had any of the problems others are mentioning, it's not lagging.. No redraw or masking problems.. The cover views rocket along even on a lowly 64mb geforce 5200 here.. All round I'm impressed.. The new views and gapless playback are really nice.

This is on a system with loads of other apps running, photoshop included. G5 dual 1.8ghz 2GB ram..

I definitely think it's worth the upgrade - don't be put off without trying it yourself first.. :)

I had been using Audacity, but was getting tired of buggy behaviour. Most notably, it only loaded 1 in about 15 times I ran it..

Taking advantage of the 1 day MU deal.. $50 seems a good price really. :)
