OS X experience

I just received my Macbook. It is my first real experience with this operating system and I should admit that I feel that working with windows has been a waste of time! Not that I didn't know that. That was the reason that I switched to Linux as the main operating system for a while.

I don't want to give a lecture on pros and cons of Mac OS X as there are countless reviews and articles everywhere. Instead I may address the issues that happen when you switch from Windows to Mac OS X.

For now I can think of these big challenges ahead:

-choosing an office suite (iWork/MS Office/OpenOffice)
-migrating mail and addresses
-choosing a good virtual machine to run Windows (VMWare Fusion/Parallels Desktop)

Next stop, OS X

I am going to buy a Mac, at last. I knew it was coming. I just tried to deny it and somewhere down in my heart I was hoping someone convince me to convert to OS X and buy get a Mac. well, it happened and I am going to buy a Macbook (maybe Pro or Air or just a simple macbook).

As I continue using Vista on my desktop, there should be some interesting compatibility and connectivity issues. If I find them interesting enough to address, I will write about them here.
