I lost my desktop and laptop in our house fire.  Been a windows guy all my life (25 years and 75 years old) I thought about trying out a Macbook Pro.  Question is; "Will I lose any functionality switching from Windows to Macbook regarding Logos software?" 

Is there anything that Logos Windows does but Windows Macbook can't?

Thanks for your response

Joe, I am really sorry to hear about the fire. Thankfully, you were not hurt. I trust that your family is safe, too.

As far as I am aware, the Windows and Mac versions of Logos have feature parity. Others can jump in to confirm this.

Thanks Bill.  No one was hurt, just the house.  In a funny way, my wife and I have said for over three years we wanted to downsize.  God was kind enough to make it happen!

I only use Logos on the PC, so I can't speak to both. But based on what I see posted in the forums, the two are not on the same footing.

I recommend you search for Mac-specific issues in the forums and read what people are posting there before you decide.

My thanks to the various MVPs. Without them Logos would have died early. They were the only real help available.

Feature parity exists. Some bugs affect only Windows devices or Macs.

I use Logos on both Windows and Mac and, apart from a few minor UI issues, as far as I can see they provide identical functionality.

I switched from Windows to MBP M1, a couple of months back.  Like Graham indicates, there's some UI bugs (not worth reporting). Else, the main difference is the little horizontal stop light on each window.

I think just moving from Windows to a Mac system will be a bigger surprise.  Being unrealistic, I assumed I could find a book on 'if Windows this, then Mac that', but just barely.  And my iPad so much better than the Mac (I'd got used to it).  I suppose I'll eventually get used to the Mac.

Having become so accustomed to window controls on the top right, I couldn't get used to the stop light in the upper left. Especially the yellow light.

I agree. I made the switch a while back and was surprised that it took me longer than I anticipated. However, now I am much happier with a Mac and don't think of switching back.

Now, if I could just get Accordance to behave ... he bumbles around all my workspaces. Ironic, since Accordance was initially Mac, I think.  Logos has its own mini-bugs, but stays in his corner correctly.
