    Supposedly will have my MBP sometime b/n 7/6 and 7/11. First Mac for me. Any good places to look for learning Mac OS?

    I'm worried I'll have a frustrating few weeks ahead and any of these type of resources will help keep me from clogging this forum with lots of silly questions.

    Thanks in advance.

    please, look at the forums here, and the stickies have great advice, plus so many knowledgeable mac ppl here.

    are you interested in books? http://www.oreilly.com/catalog/switchmacmm2/ browse around o'reily, they have great books about os x 10.4 basics all the way up to UNIX for OSX, Perl, etc. etc.

    Just remember, there are no silly questions, just silly people :D (Just kidding)
    If you've come over from the dark side, make friends with the Apple support pages, specifically "Switch 101". If you're familiar with the world of Mac and want to know more, get to "Mac 101". When you feel more comfortable, go into their technical pages and discussion lists.

    I agree, those pages, along with the Guides available here, are extraordinarily helpful.
