    Hi peeps,

    Just applying for jobs and some are asking for proficiency with Mac based systems, of which I only have limited experience. I've been raised on PC's and learnt all the Adobe software in Windows. Is there a massive difference? Should I be trying to bridge any gaps or will I be ok?

    The only difference really is the short cuts (Cmd instead of Ctrl, for example). Once you get your head around using Cmd you should be ok. I haven't used any of the Adobe packages on Windows for a while but when I switched, I didn't notice anything glaringly different.

    The biggest thing that will probably affect you is the right click, just remember to Control click (not Command) and you should be fine

    Like the others have said, the only difference between the two are the shortcuts and keyboard buttons. Other than that, the layout, tools are all the same. I learned Illustrator CS2 on PC, it was awful.
