Stack working in MACOS, not in Windows.

Well quite frankly my distaste for windows and my involvement in the arts
has pushed me toward macintosh clients,  and in this case I'm helping a
person with no evidence of further profit for me at this point, so investing
in a Dell or whatever is just not in my immediate future.

Anyway, that's one opinion, I see many Rev developers seemingly using a
Macbook exclusively for x-platform dev and turning out good stuff.
