I enjoy having Studio Artist (on the Mac only) as one of the advantages of being a creative class Mac user.
Sounds like that situation won't last forever, as Synthetik has talked about plans to make a Windows version for some time.
I realize developers may not be able to live on the Mac platform alone, particularly when the Mac market share was 3%.

But in the bigger picture I'm actually more concerned that Synthetik be a sustainable operation that is able to continue supporting and developing SA, and if it means sharing the app with Windows, so be it. It is too critical to my creativity to consider it going away.
