This sounds REALLY weird, but did anyone else get a bit nostalgic when they first got their mac about how hard it is to do things on PC sometimes? I've been a bit of a PC nerd my whole life. I've always been the one who fixed my family and friends computers, tinkered with downloaded games software, overclocked, etc... I always really enjoyed a new projected because of all of the research and work it would entail, and then because I knew I was working towards the end product that I wanted. I got my new 13" MBP yesterday and just sat down with it tonight for the first time, and in about 5 hours i've installed about a dozen big programs, made a boot camp partition, and i'm finishing installing windows 7 right now... I've already customized a ton of things and got a great screen calibration from the forums... What now? I actually have to USE it to do things? But I used to spend so much time tinkering with PC's to get them to do what I wanted, I had usually lost interest in my original goal by the time that i finished. I had a lot of fun doing those things though a learned a lot... By the by, this thread is only sort of joking. I do actually miss doing that stuff. Well on a serious note, I have VM fusion and I'm installing windows 7. So I will load windows 7 like normal, download antivirus and updates and stuff, and then install the programs that I want, and THEN if I need to use those programs I can run them through OSX without rebooting by using VM fusion? Is this right? Is parallels good too? I installed endnote X2, chembiodraw 11, MS office, photoshop, dreamweaver, transmission, skype, coconut battery, and adobe acrobat pro 9... What am I missing? Anything else I need?
