My PC has not been turned on for around 2 years . I put windows on the mac . There are still PC only programs , so you need windows [ a lot of HDR , car maintance , locksmith- a few I know of . ]
While Mac upset me when SCSI went away , firewire is better / faster .
My G-4 is so old , it has a zip drive in it - but still is running fine .

I am on my 8th mac laptop - 1 was stolen , 1 left in flooded car and others given away when replaced .
Don't worry about the mac and / or Adobe . They are here to stay .

My brother just replaced his laptop - Had best buy copy all the old stuff to a new one . They told him there were over 500 problems on a 2 year old laptop computer but at $400 , he just gives the old PC [ relatives in Mexico ] away and gets another every 2 years .
On the Mac - a lot of older programs need updating to run after OS 10.4
