    The R4 supports none. But indirectly it supports dpg format through moonshell. Check the thread below I just posted for more info regarding it.

    There are viruses for the Mac. The m,ain reason the Mac doesn't have as many because there's little point writing viruses for a smaller section of the market. If Macs were as popular as Windows based operating systems, people would put a lot more time into finding vunerabilities and coding malware and the Mac would have the same level of nefarious software aimed at it. Just like people would write a lot more non-destructive software for it. Basically there's more programmes written for the PC and that includes stuff like viruses and trojans (And of course DPG video conversion tools [​IMG] )

    DPG (0/1) video is a header followed by MP2 audio and MPEG1 video (raw mv1 stream), Mac video is archaic but if you can make the streams required you can make a dpg video. DPG2 has an addional GOP list on the end of the file which complicates things but have a read of this thread (it is for linux but it should still apply):

    Anyways, please don't make this a mac vs. windows fight. (mac +1 here)

    I too have a mac, and find it frustrating having to boot into windows each time i want to put a game on my g6, convert a dpg, etc. I do it with parallels, you should buy it. It's worth the money. Good luck, and nice seeing more mac users.

    LOL just because it was 10% mac and 90% windows, and there are "30%" more mac users"... doesn't make it 40% and 60%... it makes it 13% and 87%... i'm not criticising your figures... just your mathematics [​IMG]

    The total that the full 100% is pulling from got changed though. The 30% of users that Mac gained wasn't 30% of users who switched from Windows to Mac. If that was the case, what you're saying would be mathematically correct. But it's not the case. Out of that 30 could have been plenty who originally got Macs to begin with, which adds to the total being divided. Hence, you can't just add on 30 and take away 30. Look at it like this: Windows didn't lose 30% of it's users, so how did they drop to 60%?

    True, I'm not saying either is right. It's too retarded of an argument for me to bother with the math. And yeah, it changes again if you include all OS's. Then you've got people who multiboot or use more than one OS. Should they be counted as 1 or .5 (or .33 even)?
