Hi, don't you just hate it that everything works so smoothly on mac? I switched from PC about a year ago and up until then got very frustrated every time i had to install an audio software or a dedicated plugin or so... I new by heart the default locations of basic and default install, cause i had to, cause only rarely it was plug and play... now on mac, i dont have any excuses not to get up and start working... Everything just flies, works... very few problems so far... The biggest issue i have is that i started to lose connection with the OS internals... Every now and then i have to look up or change the path of the install.... i am lost... I want to know are there any rules while installing. By default, what goes where... for instance... just the other day i had to make an alias on the install folder of a certain plugin. the alias is used cause i had to move a large sample library to an external drive... Instead of user/library/app support/home folder i have mistakenly work with HD/library/app support/home folder my mistake entirely, but still... i know every software install should vary from one maker to another, but still there has to be a logic behind it? is there any tutorial or basic understanding of how MAC OS x install procedure works? anybody cares?
