    Why? personally I use Mac for my primary machines due to better integration and work flow with linux based servers, IOS, texting from my Mac machines is simple and easy, I can answer the phone right on the screen and be handsfree while I'm working. Most apps for Mac just work without issues, while Mac/OSX is still behind in terms of apps available, it's catching up little by little. For example, quickbooks on a mac, you may as well not even try it, it's a half baked version with limited features, so for that, I use windows, and for few other apps that are not available on OSX.

    Hello, if you use our hosting you can let your owned license expire or de-activate it as the hosted communities come with their own license. You can use most third party apps, there are some restrictions on heavy resource usage items though, if you have any specific app questions you can submit a ticket and we can review them for you if needed.  You can also use third party hooks and themes. We offer free transfers to our hosting, so it's pretty painless for the end user.  Our software can only use one domain though, so you can park one domain name on your hosted community, and if needed you can use domain forwarding for the second, third etc domains. 
    Let us know if you have anymore questions

    ​You want the OS and programs on the SSD drive, storage of files, docs, images, video, etc on the storage drive.
     
    Yes Andy, it's a 5 minute job to adjust the paths of those items now in both win7 and win8..  Much easier than it used to be long ago. 
  5. Rhett added a post in a topic: Hybrid Hard Drives   

    Is this for a desktop machine? 
    If so I would recommend going SSD, the prices have come down so far they are cheaper than standard hard drives where not long ago. Put in a smaller SSD 128GB or more for your OS, and add a single TB drive and map your docs, images, data to the standard drive. Best of both worlds, a good SSD is useless for storage, if you need more than 128GB or so, it's likely for storage.

    Cleaning up your file system will be very easy with IPS4, we will actually publish what needs to stay, however it's going to be pretty simple due to the file system in IPS4 being brand new, so most things will be able to be removed after the upgrade.

    Thanks Craig, glad to help  
  8. Rhett added a post in a topic: Can I a clean upgrade?   

    You would need to upgrade, then clean up what is needed.
  9. Rhett added a post in a topic: Cloud query   

    Ok, no problem, the original installs are done automatically after purchase, so it's no trouble at all if you want to bump up to 4 though  
  10. Rhett added a post in a topic: Cloud query   

    We can still do it if you change your mind, just let us know. 
  11. Rhett added a post in a topic: Cloud query   

    Correct, nothing from IPS3 will work on IPS4, without a new version specifically for IPS4
  12. Rhett added a post in a topic: Cloud query   

    ​Maybe  lol  
  13. Rhett added a post in a topic: Cloud query   

    Just submit a ticket, ask for me, and I'll hook you up  
  14. Rhett added a post in a topic: Cloud query   

    Go for it, a fresh install is pretty solid right now, most of the items we are seeing are upgrade issues really.     
  15. Rhett added a post in a topic: Cloud query   

    We can do a clean install of 4.0 for you as well if you would like.  
     
    As for upgrading to each release of RC, that isn't needed unless you are seeing a bug that is fixed in a new release, if you are using RC1 or 2 for example and it's working great, wait for final then upgrade again.   
    At this time there isn't a method for hosted customers to self upgrade to RC though.
