It arrived Tuesday afternoon. Again, it’s the 12″ 1.33 GHz w/SuperDrive model. It’s awesome! I’ve been bugging people about PowerBooks for almost a year. Yes! I’ve finally got one….
The problem is, this is the first time I’ve ever used a Mac and am completely clueless. I mean I don’t know anything……. I’m gonna go buy the “Missing Manual” book for OS 10.3. And hope that gets me moving in the right direction.
Look for a number of Mac questions here in the days to come. For starters I’d love to get the “software list”. You know the list. It’s the list that people post on their blogs with the “must have” apps, tweaks, hacks, etc. I’ve drafted a number of those lists for XP machines and Linux boxes, but I don’t have a clue on a Mac.
I’ll end with one more….. Browsers. Which one? Safari? IE (no way, won’t use it)? You know I love Firefox. See the posts (Post 1 and Post 2). What about Camino? What the heck is the story there. Mozilla created Camino for Macs. Then there is Firebird, which has a Mac version. And what about Mozilla, the browser? Is there a Mac version of it? Who says there isn’t any software for Macs? Look, I can even decided on a browser with all those quality choices (subtract IE from that list, please).
