    What is a switcher hangout?
    Is this an audio switcher, video switcher? It's a very confusing title.

    I thought it was someone who could go either way.
    Er, an undecided; Obama or Romney.

    at Luishen. I assume you mean Platform since there's dozens of operating systems. What is the term then for a person like me since I have to have a PC and a MAC on my desk?

    The forum description does a good job describing what this and other forums are for..
    The place for switchers to discuss their new machines, and how to work with OS X. General support can be had here for newbie stuff, like "How do I restart my new iMac?"

    You are still a switcher, we dont require you to forsake your former faith and practices entirely to join the cult of mac.

    We're not Scientology, we don't require you to disconnect yourself from your former friends for fear of ideological contamination

    Why would the "Switcher" sub-forum have anything to with a topic as narrow as just audio or video? If you look at the Mac-Forums homepage…the Switcher forum is part of the websites sub-section "General Discussions" (nothing to do with audio or video). Audio & video discussions are part of the websites sub-section "Digital Lifestyle" (which does NOT contain a "Switcher" sub-forum).

    This website is "Mac-Forums"…which is an Apple/Macintosh computer product forum to discuss just about anything Apple or Macintosh computer related.

    The Switcher forum is a place for folks who recently have or are thinking of "SWITCHING" from a Windows OS based computer to a Macintosh OS based computer.

    a Twitcher.

    But seriously, you don't have a MAC on your desk. You have a Mac. It's short for Macintosh, not an acronym, so there's no need to capitalise it.
