I have a great intrest in robotics, but have never really done it, except for LEGO Mindstorms. But, I like remote control over programming. So, I surfed the internet and recently discovered EZ-Robot and been spending some time putting together a plan for my first robot. Then I thought of the downloading for EZ-Builder, and noticed it "Requires Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7 or higher" and in the FAQs, it says "EZ-Builder will run in Parallels in Windows on a Mac but not in OS/X." What does that mean? My family only has Macs now, so how do I get EZ-Builder? If not, can you recommend another program that runs on Mac and is compatible with the EZ-B? I appreciate taking your time to read this.

Or a dual boot option using:
I believe there are a few Mac users here that can weigh in with more authority on the best option based on the model of Mac and OS version you are running.
D.J. could tell you more. It seems like it would run under the virtual windows on a mac.
