    You mean the new Creative Suite?

    I don't have a Mac, so I can't help you there. I have the Web Premium on Windows and the only bugs I've seen so far are a refresh bug in Photoshop, and an overall decrease in performance by about 5%. Loadup times (initial) are atrocious (Fireworks took over 31 seconds), but subsequent boots during the same uptime usually were an acceptable 400-600% faster.

    I'm hoping Adobe will patch in 4-6 months and tidy up a couple loose ends. Feels a little like the package was rushed. DW and FW don't even have the same UI.

    Yes sorry, Creative Suite. I've got Adobe Photoshop CS3 for Windows but some people said there was some performance issues with Photoshop CS2 on Mac's and I was wondering if they was rectified.

    Ah, since CS3 is a Universal Binary, there are no performance slowdowns on the Macs, unlike CS2. All CS3 programs have been working great so far.

    Hmmm, as I was just Googling around after you brought up the topic, it seems that early comparison tests show that the Windows version of Photoshop CS3 is about 28% faster on identical machines. I could only find tests for the beta version and not the final release though. --> http://www.circuitremix.com/index.php?q=node/9
