For the benefit of all the PC dudes on this forum wanting to know of others experiences making the leap from XP to OSX I have just finished my first month of using a Mac and without doubt can recommend the switch. I am a heavy business user (self employed graphic designer) and so rely on my computer for every aspect of my business and also for entertainment; I did anticipate installing XP via bootcamp or parallels, but as yet I haven't come accorss a single reason to install it, everything I need is on here or available in some other form. The biggest problem I anticipated was losing Outlook, but the standard Mail application bundled with OSS and iCal works fine for my needs. It's as if the operating system isn't there - it's just a matter of opening and using software that I want which makes the whole 'computer experience' so simple - I can't think of a better way to describe it other than simple. Theres no going into folders, fixing bad shortcuts, updating your spywear / antivirus things every day, no popup alerts from the operating system, no beeps and tings saying to update something, no cluttered desktop or taskbar - it's simply a matter of what you want where you want it. Seriously, it now feels like the software is the main thing on my computer, not the operating system. Can't recommend it enough. Hope that helps.
