    just throwing something out there, but maybe a 'switcher' forum would be a good idea so that all enquiries about relating old windows things to new mac things would be stored in a single forum, searchable etc. for those switchers to use

    interesting?

    Except most people don't run a search to see if their question has already been answered so I can't see the advantage of yet another forum to add to this one:

    Mac Basics and Help
    new to mac? or just need help? post here...

    We now also have the Guides and there are plenty of resources already out there for switchers, namely:

    I agree with the points made by BV
    Another forum would only confuse the issue and lead to even more double posts

    I *think* there was a switcher forum many moons ago (back when Apple were actually running the 'switch' campaign), it wasn't very successful, and so didn't stay around long. Can't see it coming back to be honest.

    Maybe the "search" button should just be edited to say "new thread" on it instead? :D That way, when people click it, everyone's happy. :)
