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!

It's funny how everyone says that, but it is so true. It's hard to go back to a windows system after bieng on a Mac. Yes it does seem like a very primitive OS compared to Panther. At work I have no choice, all the computers there run Win2000. Heh!! I find myself using apple key commands then wondering why it doesn't work!! (LOL) :p

Enjoy your Mac!!

The other thing which I thought was quite funny is how ugly Windows XP is. I haven't seen it for a while, we use Windows 2000 in school and I have turned off the 'nice' XP theme on all the computers at home. I've just been sent a screenshot of some work by a mate, and it really is quite horrible! The green and blue just doesn't work - what were Microsoft thinking?
