    I have an iMac 10.1. I looked at the EQ7 last weekend and put it back because it didn't list Mac's. How do I get windows on my Mac?

    You can get windows on mac by running bootcamp (in utilities) and then inserting a disk of windows software. It creates a partition between the two memories (mac vs. windows) and then you just run bootcamp whenever you want to switch to windows for using EQ. Usually about a 70 to 30 ratio from mac to windows will do it if you are only using the windows side for the EQ, keeping in mind the more space you use on windows, the less you will have for your usual mac activities.
    Really wish they would introduce mac capability for eq!
    There is also a support group for mac users of EQ on the EQ website :)
