Over the past few days, I have engaged on a technical learning experience. I have decided to take the plunge from the world of PC to Mac. The journey, thus far, has been aggravating at times, but I feel that with a total emersion experience, at least at home, I will be able to become proficient.
Macs are not new to me. In fact, my first computer was of the Apple persuasion. Macs have come a long way since then, but the layout has not changed overly much since the days of my usage in 1996. Oh yes, it is true that there are more visual elements, and the invention of the Spotlight feature has made my life easier, but in general, I am able to fall back on my knowledge of the Mac’s architecture to accomplish the vast majority of the things I do with a computer on a daily basis.
Don’t get me wrong, there are days when I would love to throw this computer out of a window, but I know that this is only a temporary irritation. Never the less, that evil gleam in my eye, is there for a reason, and will likely be there until I learn this confounded contraption.
