Hi all,

I'm another convert from the world of MS (yuk) and thought I'd come in and introduce myself.

I've been building and working with computers and PCs for as long as I can remember but always dreamed (but could never justify the cost) of owning a Mac.
But with MacOS being BSD based (I lurve Linux) I thought the time was right to ditch the vanilla box and come to where it's warmer

I have a week or so until my iMac 20in G5 appears but I hope to get involved and annoy the **** out of you with newbie questions (if you don't mind!).

I'll keep the PC (with Linux) but the iMac will be my main box. Can't wait!
QUOTE Thanks

Many thanks chaps!

I have a lot to learn (though I can probably wing 99% of it) but I hope to read up as much of this forum as my brain will allow (before useful stuff starts seeping out!)>

I just love the Mac idea... and the practice? Looking forward to it. :p

I don't think you'll regret it... I converted last Autumn (that's Fall to all you Americans ) and these things rock.

Hey how ya' doing? i just got the 17 inch imac g5 with the superdrive and upgraded the ram to almost a gig.
Trust me you will never wanna touch your p.c. again, but by all means ask away with any questions you might have i would be happy to answer what ever i can and i'm sure others would too.
Take care and enjoy your new imac g5, i know i am...later

Is it true that the 20" iMac G5's aren't selling alot? I was reading that everyone was buying the 17" models..

If I were to buy an iMac it would be the 20".
The 17" pales in comparison I think.
