Ok I've been using computers most of my life. I've been a paid worker in the IT field for almost 8 years now. I'm very good with the PC and what it takes to get them working and their operation. I've used a Mac before, but just for Photoshop and Illustrator. But those are pretty much the same on either platform. I recently got a MacMini at work because I'd like to become more familiar with them. I REALLY want to know more about them and their workings. I try to force myself to use the Mac for my everyday tasks so I can get to know it better. The problem I'm running in to is that I get frustrated and go back to my PC. It seems that I know so much about how a PC works that it is hard to grasp the Mac end of things. If I was learning from scratch I'm sure the Mac would be easier, but I keep thinking "This should work this way", "Why isn't that over here", "ARGH!!! why does it do that, that is just backwards". A friend said "You must unlearn what you have learned" and I find it just hard. Simple things like "Alt-tab" and the maximizing of windows don't work like I want them to and it just drives me nuts. I get frustrated and stop. Does anyone have any suggestions? Where I can go and just learn some basic stuff. I like to tinker, and just see how things works. So many things just seem counterintuitive from what I know. From what I hear things work simpler on a Mac, but it seems counterintuitive from the way my brain is now wired. I really do want to love it. I drive a Prius. And people who own them are crazy for them and you really don't understand till you get one. Mac people seem crazy too, and I'm sure its a similar thing. I really want to love it like you guys do, but I'm finding too hard.
