I'm often uncertain when to post in which of the two sub-forums mentioned in the thread title. I figure that basics and help should be just what it says - general questions about using the Mac, and that OS X should be about questions pertaining directly to the OS. But it doesn't seem that's how the threads are used. For a while I thought people were posting basic questions in basics, and more advanced questions in OS X - but then I got confused again; no pattern seems to apply. Any thoughts?
