Naw, I'm a Mac lover and I've seen Reaktor run way faster on a PC than 
on a Mac.  Much more stable too.  I'm sure that it's because Windows is 
the development platform and because they put more effort into making 
the code run well on the platform that is like 90%+ of the consumer

It's a dumb argument.  Use whichever you prefer.  Reaktor runs better 
on PC's.  I bet MSP runs better on Macs.  It's no picnic to write a 
cross-platform app, the developers' preference is always going to win 
when you're dealing with a specific program.

Ataris will always kick the shit out off both Macs and PCs for MIDI.
