Hello all, a couple of weeks ago I bought a lower end 15-inch Macbook Pro after having used Microsoft PCs for years (and being very frustrated by them as well). So far I have had little trouble adapting to Mac OS compared to the atrocious nature of Windows Xwhatever, but I do have a few questions. Safari has proved to be relatively fast for me, but I'm curious if anyone has recommendations for other browsers i.e. Firefox or maybe even others I haven't heard of. I haven't heard much about how well Safari will keep handling once I get some usage out of this machine, so I'm just curious and interested. Second, I don't plan on using a majority of these programs that came with the laptop, so how do I uninstall them. Additionally, if I realize I want to use these programs later, can I reinstall them, are they on the disk that came with the laptop? Third, there are a number of programs I used on Windows, games and applications alike, that I want to use on Mac but aren't available to the mac. I'd prefer to avoid dual-booting all together. I've heard of programs such as Parallell and Crossover but haven't heard much about how well these programs work and whether there are any others available (preferably free but that's wishful thinking). Some of the programs I use include Soulseek, Sony Acid Music, Transcribe, and a few video games (Half-life 2, Spore). I'd appreciate any links to any previous threads where these questions have been covered, any advice since I'm a newly-wed-to-mac user, and any responses to my questions, thanks you.
