    i'm not sure if this goes in Software or Hardware World but i guess it's a bit of both.

    i'll be buying a new pc (probably a Multi Vision Notebook) and i'm planning on using it for my design work too.

    now, i still have the apple mac zip discs i used in college, and they have photoshop, quark and illustrator files on them.

    i've forgot if the disks will be compatible with a pc zip drive and also if i'll be able to open the files on a pc.

    ?

    er....think that means the disc itself (not the files)
    and if you format it you lose the info

    but hey, i could be wrong
    never touched a mac in my life
    I am just a worthless liar. I am just an imbecile.
    I will only complicate you. Trust in me and fall as well.
    I will find a center in you. I will chew it up and leave.
    I will work to elevate you just enough to bring you down.

    if you format the disk you will loose the files. You can open use a program called mac opener to see the mac files.
