My husband came home yesterday with an iMac for me (saves me from buying one in the new year So I am in iMac heaven right now (can't get over the simplicty/ease of it all!!!)

few questions (which I couldn't find answers to--some I did like dock info)

is there a copy/cut/paste feature on here?

really dumb question what's the apple key? is that the command key?

my adobe programs (lightroom & photoshop) are they transferable or do I need to get a mac license? please tell me I don't have to buy one?

That's it for now (pretty simple right) I'm sure there will be more info down the road.

oh & anyone have a blue ethernet cord they can loan me LOL I seem to have lost mine *eye roll* would love to start transfering over my files!!


eta
mine came with the disk to upgrade to leopard...should I or should I wait a few more months?

1) & 2) copy and paste - [command/apple] + [x (cut), c (copy), z (paste)]

can't help you with the others. I'm still running Tiger and probably will be for a while.

Copy/Cut/Paste as you know it on the PC does not exist on the Mac. You can Copy & Paste or Cut, not all 3.

Apple (Command) + C = Copy

Apple (Command) + V = Paste

I'm not sure about the Adobe stuff, but I don't think it is. I could be wrong though, lets hope I am.

I have a bunch of 8 foot Blue E-Net cables, but you have to come get it....

Dunno whether Adobe offers a platform-switch deal. If not, you could run Boot Camp, XP (Vista?) and the Windows versions.

I'm a member of the philosophers' school that says never run software with a version number ending in .0 or the first iteration of it, no matter the number especially when it's an entire system.

If I remember correctly, Adobe will allow you to switch platforms for licensed products up to three times. You should contact them to find out how you go about doing it.

It's probably best to do an erase and install with Leopard. There is no better time to do that than when the computer is new.

There's no sense in setting up your accounts/preferences and transferring all of your data only to erase it with a clean install in a few weeks or months.

I'm not a networking professional, but wouldn't you need a crossover ethernet cable to get your file switching done like that?

One does what one can... but together we can do more.

You can get crossover cables at any office supply or electronics stores. They aren't necessarily blue. I have an orange one.

Actually, you don't need a crossover cable with a Mac.
