StataCorp ships Stata 10 for Mac OS X, as well as Unix and Windows. Details are on the Stata web site:

<http://www.stata.com/products/macintosh.html>

If you already have a license for Stata on another platform (e.g., Windows), it apparently is possible to "cross-grade" to the native Mac version for $25. See this message from Kevin Crow (kcrow@stata.com):

<http://www.stata.com/statalist/archive/2008-02/msg00992.html>

Technically, it may be possible to run the Windows version of Stata under a virtualized Windows environment on a Mac (through the use of VMWare Fusion, Parallels Desktop, CrossOver Mac and/or Sun's xVM Virtual Box), but there may be issues with speed and compatibility, not to mention the loss of native Mac support -- for example, PDF output directly from Stata or interacting with external editors -- and the hassles of maintaining a second operating system.

Since you are (or will be) new to the Mac, you might find the following websites helpful:

<http://www.apple.com/support/switch101/>
<http://www.macintouch.com/>
<http://db.tidbits.com/>
<http://www.macosxhints.com/>

Hope this helps.

Hi, it might be software related question.
I am thinking of changing my computer into Mac system, can STATA ver10
operates on it or do I need to purchase special version for Mac then?

Thank you and best regards
