Yes. I haven't gotten even half of it installed yet. I opened up the program to register it and was like "Wow!" Everything looks so different.

Congrats. I won't be able to upgrade until six months from now because I am a Mac user, but I will get it when it comes out. I won't be expecting to get all of the features that Windows users get because PG music does not care about Mac users. Just post in the forum about Real Band for Mac, the iOS app for iPad ( Isn't the iPad an APPLE product?). I don't get PG Music's logic. If someone from the company could give a fully detailed explanation as to why the center BIAB Real Band, Power Tracks etc around Windows users and leave the Mac users with the basics, that would be great. Seriously, I talked to one of the tech support people about BIAB and she told me that they purposely postpone the Mac edition with no explanation as to why. All you get with BIAB for Mac is BIAB, no Real Band not Power Tracks, just BIAB!

I live in a Mac Family. Just had to get my 12 year old daughter a power mac notebook for school. My gosh. $1300 US. A notebook PC would be about $2-400 US here in Hong Kong. I can't get on with MACs, but I do feel the MAC users get a raw deal.
