    Original thread
    http://www.mac-forums.com/forums/swi...lied-into.html

    So now I only use my PC for hard core gaming and I seldom do that cuz I can't figure out windows 7. I also get frustrated if I have to use a friends computer because it's simply to cumbersome to use a mouse now.

    I got so frustrated the other day trying to find a web site on my buddys acer I almost threw the thing at him.

    right click left click arrrg why isn't two finger clicking working I kept saying.

    any who apple has a another devotee.

    I notice the same thing. Once I got used to OSX, going back to a Windows system sometimes frustrated me to the point I had to think to use it!

    No kidding. I have to use Windows on my Mac (Parallels or Bootcamp) and I find it very frustrating.

    Ironic isn't it? I had many more years of Windows experience, yet it took me so much less time to get used to OS X than it did to get comfortable with Windows.

    Meh, I regularly boot into Windows 7 all of the time. I'm not as fluent with the OS as I am with Mac now (keyboard commands, small productivity apps, etc.) but I can move around.

    The OS is... interesting; I don't like needing virus protection software, system updates, and all of that though. For general use I stay with SL; when I want to play games, however, I go with Win7.

    I was a Windows user a lot longer than I have been a OS X User and I hate using Windows computers at work or repairing them on the side. My whole family prefers Mac now. Still have 3 Windows PC's left at home, but the don't see much use.

    Some similarities here. The only time I use windows is at work, and very little there I should add. I don't have to worry about the mouse issues since I use the trackpad al the time now at home. When ever I pick up an old school mouse i just revert to the 'right click' mentality. Copy, paste, undo are all the same to me still.
    With all that, my switch in Feb/2011 has been seamless.

    The only time I use Windows now is to let some fresh air into the house.

    Try working on windows at work with a very outdated browser!!! And because we have 200+ computers in this company which all have to stay the same, they won't upgrade.

    From what I know tho, we are getting a huge overhaul next Feb. 2012.... still windows but hopefully better software!!

    I've crashed 5 times so far this morning................. I want my Mac!!
