If you live in a Windows world because of work, the only big concern you may have is swapping Microsoft Office files between your Mac and your PC. Rest assured that this is easier than it sounds. The file formats are consistent across the two - you can open an Office-Windows file on Office-Mac, and visa versa.

Better yet, you can escape MS-Office entirely if you wish and use the wonderfully complete NeoOffice, which is the Mac native version of OpenOffice, the open source, cross platform office suite. It is fully MS-Office compatible and completely free. An excellent alternative.

Other than that, you should have no worries. You can freely swap files back and forth - your Mac has a very nice implementation of Windows file sharing and "plays nice" with any PCs it finds.

Enjoy your Mac!
