Can you possibly tell me what hardware you use, or is there a trick to gettting round the hardware checker on Aperture. My only reason to install SX is to run Photoshop and Aperture. I do shoot in RAW, my wife and I have collected 6000+ images since we got our DSLRs in November and I urgently need some processing software. There is no chance of me ever gong back to the dark side and Linux does not run these 2 apps. Many thanks, Neil.
