I have been a pc user for around 6 years and purchased my first Macbook Pro a couple of weeks ago and loving it. The only problem is I seem to have trouble when I am using a PC/ PC laptop now. No multitouch, gestures, reverse scrolling, Where is the control panel and constantly going to the other side of the window to exit/minimize. I'm worried I'm going to run into a lot of problems when I get back to school (I't currently school break) and use the PCs. Does anyone who uses both systems have problems too? Is it just a matter of time to get used to using both?

I suggest you try to balance it by using both of the Operating Systems.
Even through I used windows since I was 3, and even tho I have used windows for around of 12 years I didn't get any troubles when I got my first Mac for a couple of months ago.

I use Lion on my laptop here at home. At work I switch back and forth between a PC, a Mac Pro running OS 10.4 (Tiger) and an old G4 Mac running OS 9. It will take a little time, but you'll get used to switching back and forth. After a while it just becomes second nature.
