There is a lot of information for new switchers in the stickies that might be beneficial for you to read. If you have a copy of Windows, you can install Windows on your Mac using Bootcamp. You can also run Windows side-by-side with OSx using Parallels, VMWare, etc.

If you do this, you can install your Windows software on the Windows side.

Hope this helps. There's a lot of information already on this forum that has helped me a lot.

Welcome to Mac-Forums!

Just to clarify, BB means General Discussions (2nd section of M-F) > Switcher Hangout. BB's right - lots of thoughts/advice there.

ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ
Please post your Mac (or other) specs and MacOS version in your post, your profile or your signature. It helps us to help you better.

I'm leaving now to go and find myself. If I should return before I get back, please ask me to wait.

Another note: if you purchased the games from Steam, then you should not need to re-purchase any Steam games available for Mac. Not many are at present, but that number will grow quickly (we are told).
