Wow I still work in ix.5 on a single core mac and never crash, and experience none of these mishaps you guys are speaking of. Thank you because I was thinking of upgrading and really stumbled on this thread by accident! FYI, in that vid I think that cat is using Rob's basic brush. With that said I think he has it tweaked a bit but with a bit of trial and error it should be easy to replicate-besides I agree with one of the previous posts that you can't just use someone's brush like they do you have to tweak them all to fit your stroke and style-over the years I've tried and have never found a brush that I didn't have to modify in some way. If you check out Jared Hodges book digital manga workshop he describes multiple ways to color manga style work like that in both painter and PS. I use both but painter like 80% of the time. I really only use PS to photo bash anymore. Best of Luck.
You know there is a 30 day fully functioning trial you can use and see for yourself. Unless we are saying the product is going to cause your computer to stop functioning, it doesn't hurt to try it yourself. That way you actually have first hand knowledge of its usefulness.
