[Lance Bachelder] "This is the dilemma - stay Mac and always be relegated to sub-standard graphics cards, especially those from ATI. Or go Windows with CS6 and be able to use these incredible cards."

Honestly, if you are shifting to Adobe, unless you need ProRes encoding, or want to run Smoke (as it stands), or have some other OS X exclusive requirement, I can't see any good reason today to stick with OS X. I have my own bias for OS X, but I'm also not an editor. I have my own personal hangups with Windows, but if you are buying a workstation, it is hard to justify a Mac for Adobe CS6 under the current circumstances.

Maybe Apple will surprise us with a worthy successor to the Mac Pro this sumer, and maybe Intel and Microsoft's shift to EFI will prompt NVIDIA and AMD to ship more Mac-friendly GPUs, but today those things aren't true.

Like I said, I'm a big-time Mac bigot, but even I can't justify choosing OS X and the currently available Mac hardware for running Adobe CS6.
