I don't want to drag this out... but just wanted to share the simple feelings of satisfaction I've been having since my iMac arrived around 3 weeks ago. My first, and biggest surprise is that everything is prettier on Macs. Programs, like Google Notifier have a significantly improved interface over their Windows versions. Things run smoothly, the transition has been virtually seamless, and most importantly, simple. I've managed to find alternatives for every application I had on Windows, (with the exception of some engineering software, which I run through VMWare) Even more importantly, this new platform has opened me up to entirely new software like MacTheRipper and QuickSilver, that I've never had before. The quality of freeware/shareware here has been stunningly excellent. Lastly, and I hope this sums up my experience... I was watching the WWDC keynote in QuickTime last night, when it suddenly hit me that for the past three weeks, I had been operating exclusively on a Mac, with zero PC contact. The foreign world so many of us PC users were afraid to enter is actually quite friendly, and easy to navigate. In retrospect, there was nothing scary about this transition at all. It's been a wonderful first three weeks, and I can't wait to discover what new joys this computer will bring to me tomorrow!
