I see lots of questions around installing on a PC vs a Mac but not really any discussion of the differences between Mac vs Windows versions of the software when using Apple hardware and hardware connectivity for a Kontroller S8 when running under Windows on that Apple hardware. I am about to buy a MacBook Pro because I wanted a 1TB SSD and I like Apple hardware (I'd like it more with touch, but.....) , but I'm not a fan of their OS (especially the latest version which seems to be a step backwards according to most). I work in Windows in my day job and although Windows 8 was horrendous Windows 8.1 is bearable so I'd rather go with that than Windows 7. I get the impression (possibly incorrect) that there are more issues with Traktor on the Mac version of the software with regard to hardware drivers and speed so was going to install Windows 8.1 using Bootcamp and then run the PC version of Traktor. It minimises the learning curve of having to deal with an Apple OS (I've got an Apple Mini but don't use it much as I just don't get on with Apple's OS although I like iOS). I've also read reviews that say software actually runs faster (better) on a Windows 8.1 installation on a MacBook Pro than running the same software in native OSX - which just seems crazy. Do others have any success/horror stories to share if they've bought a MacBook Pro and run Tracktor under Windows rather than OSX? If I have to get to grips with Max OSX I will do, but at the moment Windows 8.1 seems a better way to go for me. Although the intention is to use this laptop almost exclusively for DJing it does mean that I could run my other purchased software rather than having to worry about purchasing/using the Apple Mac equivalents. Thoughts?
