The perfect storm of some generous 30th birthday gifts in late October and some smart sales by Apple and Apple authorized retailers before thanksgiving I was able to buy my long sought after Apple Computer. I bought the base 13" MacBook. The gorgeous all aluminum one!
As a long time Windows guru and still a Windows enthusiest, I am excited and really enjoy using OS X. The operating system is so simply and elegantly laid out. Necessary configuration items are in one location (System Preferences) and has a simple subset of configurations for my Mac.
The Finder is a combination of Windows Explorer and the Start Button
Finally, the Dock is an enhance version of the windows task bar. It has applications to launch and marks open applications with blue spotlight under a programs icon.
