Alternative to Mac software
I have asked to look at the provision of Apple hardware in the school - specifically iMacs and whether there is a case for replacing them with PC's. This really due to the fact that in a year or two we will have a lot that will need replacing and the costs of doing this are extortionate.
We use them in Art, Photography, Media and Music and the first two essentially use the Mac version of our CS5 site licence so I don't see any issues there. Where I am going to have a battle is in the last 2 where there is a perception that only Macs will do. Music use Garage Band but want to get licences for Logic Pro and Sibelius (which is available for PC). Media use a variety of software but predominately Adobe Premier.
What do you guys use and have you encountered any issues if you have moved away from Macs?
