After many years as a Windows user I have switched over to Mac. My MacBook Pro showed up this morning and I have been busy getting it setup. I must admit that I am a bit baffled by some of the things that were second nature to me under Windows.
All in all, this is a very sweet machine. The incredible thing is the smoothness of operation and how smokin’ fast it is. I don’t find it particularly that much easier to use than Windows… but I am a bad test case because I have been with Windows for many years. I know the in and outs pretty clearly.
My first frustration was installing new software. I am used to download an installation program, double-clicking on it, and off you go. I kept running into “disk image files” for the Mac, and didn’t how to use them! I know, I know, it’s simple. Once you know the secret handshake.
I love the big 17 inch screen!
