Well, none of us have tried on the Mac yet, because the damn thing hasn't
shipped. I'd like to know WHY it has shipped for windows and not for the
Mac. Every time I call and ask about this, there is a different story,
including (1) detection of serious bugs in the Mac version late in the
beta cycle, (2) duplication delays, etc. 

Does anyone know the real story on this, including a ship date? I'm
beginning to feel like WRI is the Microsoft of the symbolic computation
business. If there is any further suggestion that the Mac is not being
supported properly and if there are further delays, well, then it's time
to look into Maple!
