I've currently got it on dual-screen with my 17" Compaq TFT monitor.

Yes, I'm a Mac virgin.

The interesting thing though is what Windows feels like after using this for a 24 hours. Windows feels old like it was made in the 1980s, probably because it was, where as OS X is a new operating system only made a few years ago and it really shows. Everything is much cleaner, clearer and just that-bit-smoother. It has the wonderful graphics, but they don't studder or shake like in Windows.

Another example is that on Mac OS X, you can use the map of the world picture in the Date & Time to set your time zone. In Windows, the map of the world is just a picture and does nothing at all. It looks like Microsoft have tried to copy everything but haven't quite finished it, dispite OS X being made several years after 95/NT.

One happy bunny. I haven't even played with themes yet, I'm saving that for when I get bored of the normal OS X.

Now this is multitasking to the extreme! I'm importing a CD in iTunes, listening to music in iTunes, I've got Photoshop Elements batch processing a load of files, Dreamweaver uploading another load, I'm surfing around with a few Safari windows open and I'm chatting on MSN and iChat as well.

This is brilliant!
