What will I be missing if I make the switch from Ubuntu/Linux to Mac?

    I am using Linux/Ubuntu for 3 years now . I always wanted a Mac but could not afford it . Mac OS is quite similar to Ubuntu as they share common back ground from Unix .

    what thing I am going to miss if I switch .

    Ubuntu is highly customizable (we can make it look according to our needs )

    I wonder if this can be done with Mac OS X .

    how do you use your computer with only one mouse button .

    I am looking to buy a MBP 15" .

    thank you

    1. Macs use multiple button mice. Have done for years. Even back when the standard Apple mouse was a single button device, Macs supported multi-button mice natively.

    2. There are things you can do to customise the look, but most people don't bother. One of the Mac's strengths is the user interface. My experience is that it pays not to mess with it.

    Macs are pretty good computers I use them from 5 years now. Previously I have been using linux for 10 years. I only use it now for my servers.

    Not really. Various tweaks for functionality are available, but nothing for Ubuntu-like theme changes that work reliably.

    Somehow we manage to tough it out.
