Hey everyone, its good to be back.

My Mac days started when I had an iBook G4 with Panther on it. For some stupid reason I sold it!

I have been working on PC's for the past year and a half due to work etc.

But today I went and got me a new iMAC 17". It is seriously cool!

I have never used tiger before and I have to say that I am pretty impressed with it!

Down with PC thats what I say!

Be prepared for all my stupid questions about tiger!

I'm not sure about what torrent clients have the best reviews, but I have heard good things about Transmission, Azuerus, Acquisition, etc... HERE is a link to some reviews of them.

As far as any applications are concerned, I would HIGHLY recommend Quicksilver... I can not imagine my computer life without it.

Dive into it... spend sometime figuring out the MANY many things it can do and be used for. I have it set to invoke when I press F1... you have no idea how many times I now press F1 it does it all.

this might sound silly but do I have to manually switch to os9 from tiger somewhere or if a program isn't receptive to tiger the computer will know to switch over to os9 mode?

thanks for your help.
