Re: Switch from Windows to OSX? (mostly for Lightroom)

According to this forum thread Photoshop still doesn't scale up its interface for high resolution screens on Windows so the tools and menus will be very tiny and difficult to use. Adobe says it's Microsoft's fault, however I don't fully buy it - I understand Windows might not have such good system support for high dpi scaling but on the other hand scaling UI elements has been possible since at least Windows 95 as long as the application was designed to do that.

However, reading between the lines there people say that Lightroom works well on high dpi screens so you might have more luck with that but somebody else would have to confirm it.

Generally, it looks like OS X and its applications work better on retina displays.
