Hello, I'm Wendy, a Mac user/owner since the late 80s. I live in sunny Scotland, UK. Thought I'd best check in here first out of politeness before I go looking for assistance with a Mac Pro/Windows 7 problem!

Hopefully after that I will hang around and get a feel for this interesting place.

Thank you.

Welcome Wendy. I'd bet the rest of your countrymen are a little jealous that you managed to find the sunny spot in the UK .

Hehehe. Very droll I'll have you know it was indeed beautifully sunny here today - for a November day.

Thank you both for the speedy welcome.

am still finding my way around here; hope this post ends up in the right place!

switched from pc to mac a year ago. i've a 21" imac on snow leopard, and i did the migration myself. using parallels to access all the documents i've got in wordperfect, which i REALLY wish would run on a mac without sheep! i'm a teacher, and i've a district issue macbook, also running snow leopard. am planning to purchase an ipad as soon as i can decide if i can wait for ipad3 or not. unfortunately, no iphone - service is outrageously expensive where i live.

i love learning tech and helping others by sharing experiences. greatly appreciate the expertise and generosity of spirit here.

ooops, just noticed the intro thread because I'm not a switcher and hadn't looked in here until now.

I'm Fred and I've been a Mac convert since 2002. Hmmmm.... that kinda sounds like AA: Apple Anonymous

I worked on a Mac in OS 9 for awhile and when I first saw OS X, I simply had to have it. My first Mac was an iMac Power PC G4 running Jaguar and it still runs with 10.4.11 now. I still use that computer to run some pre-Intel apps that I don't feel like replacing yet, like Photoshop CS2. I'm not sure why I never got around to joining this forum before but I'm here now and I've already gotten help with Lion on my current system. Thanks for the great forum!

Edit: now see, I told you it was like AA: I just realized that I'm actually in some kind of lounge, not the Switcher's Forum. Such is life!

I am trying to find out any information I can about Photoshop and Mac 10.5.6
I recently upgraded my Power Mac G4 to 10.5.6.
With that I lost my Photoshop 7
So now I have to find out which Photoshop will work with Leopard and where I can purchase this older version and do I need a serial #.
Any advice would be very welcome.
Thanx,
Iris

At the writing of this my new iMac is still in transit but I should have it this week.

I'm so glad I found this forum. So far during my brief time browsing the discussions, everyone seems very friendly and helpful and that will help put my mind at ease should I feel the need to ask some questions.

I live in Canada in Ontario, east of Toronto. I have a brother living in Florida who is a die-hard Mac supporter and user and he is the one who encouraged me to make the switch after so many years on a Windows PC.

I look forward to being a part of this community.

Hello,
I'm new here, new to Macs as well as this forum. I'm getting a Mac to broaden my horizons. I've been mainly a Windows user and I use Linux for servers and occasionally on my desktop just to mess around with new distros. I decided that I've been willfully ignorant long enough and should jump into the pool and splash around a bit.

I've got a new 13" Macbook Pro on its way to me right now (I ordered online to take advantage of an Air Miles deal). Going to be upgrading the RAM and HDD right away, and from that point forward I'll probably dual boot OSX/Windows and hopefully have a reliable development machine.

Before I ask any questions, I'm going to search the heck out of these forums. Usually when I join a forum I lurk more than I post, but when I do have a question, I don't want to be one of those people whose "Member Since" date is the same as the thread creation date

Hey, just a quick into:

I entered the Apple world like a lot of others through the pod and then to the iPhone 3G.
I have a game design degree and was hardcore PC (Alienware) until I decided to get a much smaller, less power hungry 13" Macbook 2.4GHz back in early 2009, mostly for travel purposes after I joined the military.

I haven't looked back since.

I have zero programming experience and most of my knowledge is OS based. So I don't think I can help much here. But I will keep my ear to the keyboard!

Hello all,

I've been a Mac owner for almost 4 months now. I am an IT professional that spent most of his days hating Apple because it was the cool thing to do if you are in IT. I look back on that like I look back on my days in middle school......lowers head and shakes in disgrace..........anyways, I'm happy to be here and happy to be broadening my horizons and learning more. I am fairly technical and hope to be able to lend my knowledge and help to folks here on the boards. Looking forward to looking around.

Listening and Learning.

Hi everybody,

Just joined. Actually my "first" forum as a member trying to figure out how this all works. Got tired of Googling about for answers on Mac issues.

Switched from PC royal mess to just-working-all-the-time-Mac for my whole family (5 + cat) (3 iMacs, 2 MBP, iPad, iPhones.... iPaid!) some five years ago. A great switch! Right now I decided to try to figure out how to benefit from Applescript and how to use is.

/Best
