I highly recommend it. I've been doing professional web application development for over a decade, and I can't even tell you the last time I owned a desktop. Being able to take your work with you is...

That said, I use a monster Intuos3 at work and a small Bamboo Fun at home and they both work...

I don't think supersaturating an image is necessarily a bad thing, but I think it has limitations and applies better to some objects than others.

In my personal opinion, which should have no...

Have to second the POS comment. I recommend checking out fredmiranda.com and the review section there for people's opinions on basically anything you can think of.

Cocoa#, Mono and a couple of other projects out there provide a CLI for .NET on OS X. That said, they're usually a few steps behind Microsoft and I have found it to be a complete pain in the ***.

If you reinstall, it won't take any more space than the existing install takes. It'll just overwrite it. The only thing you have to worry about is how insanely long it takes to install.

He's right. Without the insane ISO of the 5D, the XSi would just pick up a blur. You'd do well with a speedlite, but you'd lose some of the insanity in these shots.
