I have a question about Mac OS X. My current PC is sharing a DSL connection with two other (Windows) machines. If I plug my network cable into a Mac, would it automatically connect me to the internet like Windows XP does? I ask because I may be making the switch within the next year. I want to switch now, but this PC is only a year old. I need to wear it out a bit. Plus, I'm a student. I work full-time (at 8 bucks an hour ) during the summer, and part-time during the winter. I'm a... well... I'm a penny pincher. I try to save as much money as possible. I don't like spending large amounts of money. That's what's going to make the switch hard for me.
