Ok so 5 months or so ago i was bullied into my baby (MBP) just an update if any are interested.

Original thread
I was bullied into it

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!

Welcome aboard!

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.

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.

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!!
