Difference Between OSX and PC, FCP7 or FCP X ?

So I have never used FCP on a PC, I know they are supposed to be identical, however this is a teaching environment and any surprise's I would like to be somewhat prepared for.
Thanks all,
Craig

FCP...be it FCP-X, or FCP 7, 6, 5 and so on...ONLY work on Macs. There is no Windows version of this software.

It's an Apple product designed and made for an Apple platform. |
They never made (and probably never will make) a PC version.

Like the others said, there is no such thing as Final Cut for Windows (or Linux, Unix...). If it is really FCP and is really running on a computer that is not made by Apple, it's running on a Hackintosh, a PC tweeked to run Mac OS.

Be very wary if this is indeed the situation you'll be facing. I've worked on one rock-solid Hackintosh system that was very impressive, even compared to a real MacPro. The other ones I've seen were quite unstable and in no shape to run FCP reliably.

The software would be exactly the same and operate in the same manner exactly. Before it bugs, that is. The possible operational difference would be the keyboard being mislabelled in the Cntrl-Alt-Option area. On another note, a Hackintosh is legally dubious, especially in a teaching environment. At least one EULA is being violated.
