    I am not a Mac user, yet.

    I came across quite many terms that used

    But I do not know what does it means.

    Like;

    Linux, uBuntu, Leopard, Lion

    Can Anyone summary for me? I know I am lazy but please

    Also, All of the Mac s/w & app required money?

    How about Microsoft Word then?

    Thanks.

    There you go. All those terms refer to operating systems. I'm not sure what you mean by your other questions. By the way, you asked these questions back in November. Did you not read the responses?

    The guide you might need:
    Helpful Information for Any Mac User by GGJstudios


    Linux, uBuntu, Leopard, Lion
    I used Google, a www search engine to find the above links.
    In short, "Linux, uBuntu, Leopard, Lion" are the names of various operating systems (OS), Microsoft Windows is an OS too.
    Linux is the name of a UNIX-like family of OSs, Ubuntu is a Linux variant, Leopard is the OS Apple offered before the current one, and Lion is the OS will offer after the current OS. Leopard and Lion are UNIX based.
    The rest you can read on the links GGJstudios and me provided.


    No, many are free.

    The Windows version of MS Office or MS Word is not free. So is the Mac OS X version.

    Pretty much the same answers you gave when the OP asked the same questions back in November. Hopefully, they'll read them this time.

    Ah, thanks. I find it often too slow to check the post history (I am lazy).
    Nice find anyway, looks like four months can be a forgetful time.

    from "Mbp"

    Though I didn't link to that dreadful guide by some higher power back then.

    Hey Sorry guys
    My previous Nov posts was when I plan to purchase MBP
    but at that time I gave up on it because of some issue and plan to get it now :p

    Since there are quite a lot different OS there
    which one is the best to use?
    btw,
    I will take my time to read up everything!

    How about setting up other window? like window 7?
    I heard of Bootcamp, VM, Fusion.
    What was that?

    May I know if Mac is like Window?
    In window most of the s/w like MSword can be downloaded or crack
    *Is crack or what can be discussed here?

    Thanks Guys!!

    * I just read my previous posts
    All right. Warez

    If you're buying a Mac, it comes with Mac OS X. Use that. There's no need to use any other OS unless you have need of a specific app that only runs on another OS and has no Mac equivalent.
    As simsaladimbamba told you back in November, don't discuss pirating software in this forum. It's a violation of forum rules. If you want software, pay for it, or find free alternatives.

    You really would do yourself a great favor by firing up a web browser, getting on Google, researching the terms and educating yourself.

    Not trying to pile on, just trying to really help you.
