    I made the switch to a Mac tonight, I like it...
    Hello everyone. I am a new user and just registered on the forums tonight. I also switched to a Mac tonight. I purchased a Powerbook G4. I honestly could not be happier.

    I am a student majoring in computer science, and I have been involved with computers since the days of dos and windows 3.1. I got tired of windows, and have been using Linux for a while, and decided to make the switch to a mac since OS X is based off of unix (Free BSD is it?).

    I look forward to being an active member of this forum, and learning about the many things things that can be done with my new mac.

    Thanks for reading!

    -Jason (A very happy new mac owner, and switcher). :cool:

    Hey man, congrats on your PowerBook. Those are sweet!

    And I read somewhere it was Darwin or something. Not Free BSD. But I know nothing about development. I just make music and movies...
