After being so fed up with Windows’ slowness, including frequent freezing and losing of unsaved data, I braved myself to get myself a Mac. So yesterday I bought myself the new aluminum MacBook along with the cordless Mighty Mouse 🙂
I must admit that it was not an easy decision. After all I’ve been using Windows for almost half of myself and the price tag of the MacBook is about 3 times of Dell Inspiron notebook. I browsed many Mac forum and asking questions, and also asked my friends who got the enlightenment (moved from Windows to Mac).
Before making my ultimate decision, I did research if there’s the Mac version (or at least the alternative) for my frequently used programs such as Camtasia, SnagIt, ActiveSync, WinRAR, and so on, including how to export all of my data safely to Mac. Yes, I got my ThunderBird mailboxes and FireFox bookmarks intact on my new Mac! 🙂
And my first impression on my new MacBook and Mac OS X: they’re impressive and very easy to use!
Switching from one program to another is so easy using Expose. It’s much much better than Windows Alt Tab!
I can have a few desktops for working space using Spaces.
Uninstalling programs is so easy… just by moving it to trash bin that it scares me that I may accidentally uninstall my programs.
So I can say that this moving from Windows to Mac is one of my greatest decision!
