    Definitely an issue, I use a PC in my work, in the machine I have the Desktop Software, at home I have a Mac also with Desktop Software... differences are huge! I wonder how come being the same software it is so different.

    I have posted it before, I do not like Windows, but I have to admit that the PC version is way better than the Mac, but I have to say it, my main complain is that you cannot migrate to a newer device on Mac as easy as it is on a PC!

    It's simple, and I quote a RIM Tech person from a year or so ago "Macs aren't real computers" (I was on a tech support call from my place of business and they were telling me I had to use a PC to back up and reinstall if I had to wipe/reset my 8300) - it is now two years later, and we still have to use a PC to upgrade our OS' if we go to blackberry.com directly.

    It's sad that the Desktop Manager program for Mac isn't as full as the Windows equivalent, but on the opposite hand, I'm just glad they finally released a version for Mac.

    That being said, @Stereo_Pair, my impression was that upgrading the OS for Blackberry can be done with DM for Mac for official vendor upgrades only. However, what most of us do (the non-vendor specific upgrades) does require Windows DM.

    I have a pc as well as my macs, but prefer the mac DM as it blasts the pants off the pc version for sync speed. Having said that, I do a monthly backup on the pc just in case.

    This article probably explains why DM for Mac has not been developed to the extent that is has been for Windows. 85% of Mac owners have Windows too - Apple 2.0 - Fortune Tech

    I'm a Mac user & I've never had any issues switching devices on DTM for MAC. I just recently changed devices & my old info downloaded to my new device in about a minute or so & I haven't had any problems syncing my music to iTunes. Is the PC version that much better?
