Hey all, Been reading here forever and finally signed up. Just wondering what everyones story is as to how they came to the Mac side? Did someone show you a mac? Did you just get tired of windows sucking so bad? Viruses? Spyware? Whats your story? Mine is backwards from most peoples I think. I first learned about computers when I got hired by a company that used nothing but sun. So I learned command line Unix and some gui solaris and loved it. Then, I had a friend who was selling a Mac clone. It was a Motorola Starmax 3000 with 180Mhz processor and I think 16MB of ram (I think)... and it was running 7.6.1. I had that computer for a few years, upgraded the ram, HD, and loved it the whole time. It did everything so well. I had messed with windows on occasion, but wasnt really impressed with it at all. Then finally, my friends convinced me to get a Windows machine so I could play games with them at LAN parties so I went out and spent $1500 on a 500Mhz gateway with monitor and speakers. Within the first 20 minutes of using it, I knew I made a mistake. A brand new peeceee and video was already choppy? as the weeks went by and the crashes started to appear along with the BSOD I was really aggravated with windows, but I did learn alot about how you should back up data and re-install windows every few months. Anyway, a couple of years ago, I got back to Mac when I bought my 700Mhz iBook G3 and am now am totally addicted to mac. I also bought a used 350Mhz blue and white tower that I still use and it works great! I still use windows just to stay current and for whatever I cant do on the mac (which isnt much) but since the iBook purchase, I have converted at least 20 people to mac users from windows! Anyway, sorry for the long post but I would love to read all your posts on how everyone became a mac user!
