GoLive or Dreamweaver in Win/Mac lab?

By hrhsoleil ·
I've got Mac lab that has a couple of Windows workstations. I've got a choice between using GoLive or Dreamweaver for a new project. What I want to avoid is a lot of "If you're on a Mac, do it this way....if you're on a Windows machine, do it this way." Anyone have any thoughts about which application would do better in a mixed environment?

No question, Dreamweaver.

IMO, Dreamweaver is the only way to go here. It is the most robust of the two packages and is the market leader. So users will be gaining experience on something that they might actually use later.

As far as I know (although I could be mistaken), the feature set is the same between the Mac and Windows versions.

Here is the feature list:

Definitely Dreamweaver and for the same reasons as sMoRTy's!!!

Dreamweaver has pretty much become the standard and it has great help files for the uninitiated.

Hands down, in fact there is very little to compare between the two.

Go Live barely touches the surface of Macromedia's offerings and power.

Although Macromedia stock was recently acquired by Adobe, I certainly can't see them dropping Dreamweaver, the industry leader, for Go Live any time in the near or distant future.

Interface, I actually prefer it on MAC than Windows, especially when you get the Studio MX suite (Dreamweaver, Fireworks, Freehand and Flash) as MAC's handle the graphics apps better, I find.

A good test, if you're still not convinced that GoLive is dead in the water, download a trial for each and test them out.

You will find Dreamweaver has a much tougher learning curve, but the documentation is excellent, the online turorials are available for just about anything and the Forum support is VERY quick.

Why wouldn't the best website design software also have the best support/product website too?

Third for Dreamweaver

You'll want to use Dreamweaver for sure. It works far better on both platforms and doesn't create any wonky code.
