I've attained a semi-power user status on an XP Pro PC in about five years' time, with a dangerous noob's boldness when it comes to "managing" my PC, doing things like optimization for music production, etc. All the while I've disdained Mr. Bill, et al, swearing to one day Make The Switch. Well, I've done it but I don't know how to speak Mac to do the things I used to do, namely scrubbing out all the bloatware and other unwanted apps that came with this brand-new used "Late '05" 10.5.8 2.3ghz dually PowerPC, for starters. Yes, I've visited the Switch 101 site but again, I don't know MacSpeak so I don't know how to ask what I need to ask. Is there a chart or something that parallels Windows functions with Mac, i.e., Control Panel equals _______ or Device Manager equals __________? Or perhaps, I've lost my eyesite staring at the BSOD, LOL! Thanks in advance for the cordial, polite and helpful advice I know I'll receive from the mature and friendly Mac users out there as opposed to the smart-assed PC 'gurus' who spawn Best Buy employees to further humiliate us.
