I think it's easier to do on a mac than a pc. Most things work easier on a mac. Windows just gets in the way.

I have been designing websites since the 6th grade so about 11 years.

obviously I wasnt using intensive programs back then but I started using dreamweaver and photoshop a few years go. I used to be all windows based for everything up until 6 months ago

6 months ago I bought my apple and got CS3. Im never going back to windows again. The programs feel more like they were designed to run on an apple in my opinion

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

I use both pc and mac for webdesign.
Mostly dreamweaver & photoshop.
Although i do use iweb when i'm short of time, and i have to say i prefer to use my mac as it seems to run smoother.
Especially since i had a problem uploading the site on my pc using dreamweaver and had to manually upload the files, whereas on mac it worked fine.

^ this site has a lot of photoshop and flash info, could help you if you want to make a flash site.

Hope this helps.
Mike

Wait, aren't people supposed to start on Dreamweaver? I started out in Aptana, which is actually just a really good IDE, but now I just do all my stuff in Notepad++... like I write my own code, doesn't dreamweaver just kind of drag and drop? I never actually used dreamweaver so I could be wrong. Clarify please?

You can design many different ways. Most graphic designers don't know a lot of code so they use Dreamweaver to do most of the coding for them.

They usually design the layout in Photoshop or Fireworks and then they slice the images and set up the grid structure/tables and add the images.

You can also code by hand in Dreamweaver as well so yes you can copy and paste code.

tables are a terrible idea though.

with css there is really no excuse to use tables.

AND dreamweaver can handle css
