I’m a Mac

I know, long time, no post. This summer I bought a new notebook and finally got  the Mac that I’ve been waiting for. I’ve been looking to make a purchase since I gave away my Powerbook 1400cs around 2002. Since I switched platforms (I had a  Dell notebook running Windows XP) I’ve had to rethink what programs I use. Now my default workhorses Dreamweaver and Photoshop seem bloated. I’m really interested in programs that are designed for Macs. I downloaded the trial version of Pixelmator and so far it’s been a good substitute for Photoshop. There are some features of Photoshop that I miss but Pixelmator is in its infancy and has lots of room to grow. For Dreamweaver alternatives I plan on evaluating Coda and Espresso.
