Greetings all, long time x98 user here. This site and these forums have been a great help in determining what I need, and more importantly, when I want to buy my first Apple computer. However I need some straight-talk here, that I can't seem to find elsewhere. Coming from a long-term windows environment, am I going to need a book to use OSX properly? I gather that a huge premise of Mac functionality and software is based around ease of use, and that's a huge attraction. But when I go to my local Apple store and use their machines to get aquainted with OSX, it seems like a whole other world. Hearing things form this forum like: Are starting to set off a small alarm. I'm very proficient at what I do in windows, which, admittedtly, is mostly gaming, music, web-surfing, and working with documents. That's why an iMac is perfect. Except for gaming. I'm still keeping my PC as a stripped machine. However, what I pine for is the look and feel of OSX, and iMac, but is this going to be culture shock? Can someone shed a little light on how easy, or not easy OSX is to use? A link to a site explaining is fine, I guess, too. I just can't seem to find anything that isn't an ad. Any personal experiences like mine that turned out well? Or are we all just die hard macaholics from the cradle?
