Finally I gathered the courage I needed and went for it.
I bought a PC. It was an HP. It was big and boxy and so ugly. I didn't know how to do anything with it except draw pictures, write papers, and play Police Squad. It was amazing. I'm not sure how long that PC lasted me, but it was only the first of many. I have had HPs, Toshibas, Gateways, Dells. But I was always a PC.
But today a significant part of me has changed. Today, after almost 20 years of being a PC, I am officially a Mac. I have heard there is a learning curve. In fact, I'm already experiencing some difficulties, but I am trying to be patient and accept things as they are. I knew that by switching teams I was going to come across some differences in equipment, but so far it has not been unduly difficult. I still have some questions, but I am slowly learning.
Have any of you switched teams? Do you have any suggestions to offer a newbie like myself?
