I was wondering how many people here have switched from PC, or have been Mac people all their lives. I made the switch about a year ago, and I will never go back.

If you think about the two options you provided:

- "how many people here have switched from PC"
- "or have been Mac people all their lives"

That pretty much covers 99% of the members here on Mac-Forums!!!

Some long-shot possibilities:

- folks that have been Mac-users...and switched to PC (Windows computers)...and for some strange reason still hang out here.
- folks that may be thinking about purchasing a Mac...but haven't yet.
- trolls!
- spammers
- etc.

Maybe those possibilities add up to more than 1%. Ha ha.

Who would switch to PC from Mac? That's ludicrous.

Look at his/her profile under their username.

As for the 1%, it would be the people on the fence about switching, or the jealous Windows PC people that come here to troll.

That would be an interesting but probably very sparse topic. Honestly, does anyone know a single person that has ever switched from Mac to PC? I mean unless they were forced for some reason (work, school, etc) I can't even imagine someone voluntarily switching from Mac to PC.

I made the switch in 2009 after over 20 years as a PC user.

I know a guy who switched from Mac to PC. But he hates his new PC and wants to go back.

On a more serious note, since I first saw the Apple Lisa and later the Mac Plus, I was always a Mac user in my heart but my pocketbook would not allow me to purchase one till years later. I really am a Dual User as I have to in my line of work troubleshooting Windows systems, but the Mac especially after OSX is what I use for 95% of my work.
