Mac Compatibility
« on: January 06, 2009, 06:29:01 PM »
I am thinking about getting a Mac in the near future.  Since I haven't built any robots yet I don't know anything about the software or about robot programming.  How compatible is a Mac and it's OS with robot software?  Also how will getting a Mac affect what I can do/use in robotics?

Thanks

Depends on what software you plan to use.

Not very compatible at all actually with what I use. You can use a virtual machine, but if you do something processor intensive (like CAD or a simulator) it'll be really slow.
