    Help New Mac User
    It's been a month since I made the switch and I am having trouble understanding why everything works. I have been able to accomplish tasks on my Mac that i was never able to figure out on the PC. I've designed websites in minutes and It used to take days. I'm much more productive then ever. Is something wrong?

    PS. My MacBook has not crashed and I have not had to reboot yet. Is this normal? I'm a little worried. Thanks in advance for all the help.

    If in doubt...Just freak out.

    I'm also a New to Mac, however it has been like you've said except the odd "hiccups" in Safari. But apart from that it does seem alot more stable OS than Windows is and alot faster booting up is the main thing I noticed.

    LOL! I feel a little retarded for not making the switch sooner. Mac's have come a long way since my old Apple IIe and IIc. Anyone else remember those computers?

    Yeah they have, but apparently Windows hasn't...

    Given a choice everyone opts for a Mac. I've yet to meet someone use a Windows box to do something the mac can. And it's good that way.

    Going from Windows to Mac wasn't groundbreaking for me...but going from Windows to Mac BACK to Windows REALLY made me appreciate it. I can't go on a PC for more than 10 minutes without something screwing up.
