    The Mac file system has made me a FASTIDIOUS housekeeper!
    Hi all! Pretty new here, and pretty new to Mac. I simply cannot over-emphasize how BLOWN AWAY I am! I am getting FAR more practical and work-related use out of this little workhorse than I ever did on a PC. Spilling beer on my Dell and moving up to this was DEFINITELY a good move. Maybe not spilling the beer, though. It was good beer. Now, when I play guitar and drink beer, the beer does not sit on the same table as my Mac, which I use for to display the song I am playing. Anyhow, on to my point:

    The WONDERFUL filing system that Mac uses, MAKES me want to be organized in my filing. I tried, Miley knows I TRIED MAH BEST in Windows-land to stay organized, but it's just IMPOSSIBLE. Now, most things intuitively go to where they are "supposed to", and I get frustrate when they don't, so I host 'em on over there with the quickness! No stuff, EVER permanently left on my desktop. After I'm done working with it, it's to the trash or shuttled to it's appropriate folder. You shoulda seen the C-F that was my Windows directories. Now, I won't have it any other way. If I can't straight-up find what I need, once filed, in Finder, which is rare, a moment in Spotlight does the trick!

    I am SO GLAD to own this wonderful machine!

    However, i still hate iTunes.

    You just have to get used to iTunes to love it. I cannot live without iTunes anymore, 10 years back it was different but once all my libraries were captured and fixed the way I wanted I have no problems using iTunes. Try some housekeeping within iTunes, most people don't like iTunes because of the other files that gets imported and compiled automatically.

    With regards to the iTunes situation, just wait until you get Airplay up and running with your home stereo system, and the remote app for your iPod or iPhone. You'll be walking around the house controlling all your music and playing DJ at your parties. Very cool stuff!
