Congrats! Just make sure you don't try to make it Windows, instead, forget everything about Windows and learn from start. Lots of things are different, and (IMHO) different in better ways.

Time to celebrate! I just converted about 3 weeks ago and its been so easy to set up my imac and get started. You won't regret the switch one bit and this forum is a great place to get you over the few humps you might encounter. I don't plan to ever use windows again!

welcome to the fold!

here's some good info...

a few apps to check out:

unison - great newsreader/binary downloader if you need that sort of thing.

onyx - excellent maintenance tool, great for cache maintenance and tweaking preferences

delocalizer - will free up a couple gigs of space by removing extra language support if you don't need it (i recovered about 2.8Gb).


also, these threads are fun for anecdotal reference:
