I am not sure I am violating my linecence agreement for using my serials, since they are good for pc, linux, or unix.

The other thing is that I am an aliance macromedia partner.....so I get these things for free.

I would like macromedia to know that I am using the mac....how would you suggest I do this?

    I'm chapped that Macromedia does not allow people that are "switchers" like me to migrate
    our products from the PC versions to the Mac versions. I plan on raising hell with them about it this week. :-)

    If you contact me offline at dicklacara@mac.com, I will tell you who to contact at Macromedia.

    I don't have permission to post the email address on a public forum.

    According to Macromedia, you are not violating your license agreement -- they allow you the flexibility to determine which platform to use.

    However, if you ask for support for a product running on an unsupported platform (e.g. OS X Production system) you will likely not be supported.

    I am told that the reason that Macromedia did not release a production OS X version is that Macromedia did not think there was significant potential sales to justify the expense of setting a Mac OS support infrastructure.

    Supporting a developer system requires significantly smaller resources.

    By releasing a developer product, Macromedia responded to requests and now has a presence -- it is up to us (the market) to help prove that there enough potential sales to justify a production produce.
