If you like it on the MAC you'd really love it on Linux. Incredibly fast and extremely powerfull, and very user friendly. 
No I don't work for DaVinci or Blackmagic. But really happy to have purchased Resolve.

Been running Resolve on Mac with BMD-panels for a fee weeks now. 

Apart from limitations on the Mac-side regarding PCI slots etc. The 
only real problem I have is that it is so fast that it's eating up all 
the bandwidth on the SAN!!! 

For example. 
We scan on Scanity in 1K 
Then grade on Resolve on a Mac and render out as SDProresProxy. And 
it's bloody fast. Goes up over 100fps! 
And with three Mac-Resolves speeding along in warpspeed it's hard for 
our poor SAN to keep up :) 

For final commercial grades we read 2K and that's going well. 

By the way. I don't work for BlackMagic. But are happily using there products.
