The day has finally arrived.

I now post on my brand new Powerbook G4 15".

I have never been this excited, nor impressed nor borderline-insane with happiness about a computer before.

Goodbye Windoze, the cult of the Apple has gained a new acolyte. :D

I was in the same position yesterday :D

Tip: the function of CTRL and ALT has been switched (windows to mac) e.g CTRL+V = Paste in windows > ALT (option) +v = paste in osx

I think you meant to say "Command" (aka: "the Apple key"). Alt (option) + V doesn't paste, it creates the "?" symbol. "The Apple Key" is what switched with control in Windows. The Alt (option) key is usually a way to make odd symbols (ie: Alt + S = ß)

EDIT: Alt (option) does not create a Question Mark, it really is something that looks similar to the square root symbol, but this forum software can't recognize it.

First, congrats Seasought, you are sure to have many years of happiness with your new mac!

You mean command-v for paste for an apple. (the command button is the one with the apple on it)

My favorite Apple key command is still ZOOM
Apple ( command ) + and -
to zoom the text on any web page.

Welcome!

You are now using the greatest OS ever created. I switched in December '04 and never looked back!
