In my opinion, the Mac version has much less lag than the Windows version. The (F)(B)(Q) run very smoothly on my Mac, and I am not even going to attempt downloading it onto my Windows.

True that, i can run all the high quality routes super smoothly on my mac (And the R46) Windows makes it lag sooo much. Once you go mac you never go back  ;)

The (F)(B)(D)(N)(Q) i can all run smoothly

The only issue with Macs is that most plugins aren't compatible. Hopefully someone can code a cross-OS plugin for rollsigns/beacons etc.

Is it really the software? Are you sure it is not a difference in the hardware?

Yep. The .dll file as an app extension "plugin" is unique to Windows. I do not know of a Mac equivalent
