From the many comments I received, I suspect many of you read my post “Dear Microsoft – I’m Leaving You” with some amusement. As it seemed to be quite a popular subject that evoked a high degree of conversation, I thought I would do an update as I have been living with Apple for some 2 weeks now.
So far I have to say that I’m impressed. The MacBook Pro is incredibly fast and very stable. I lover the flexibility of use and the speed of start up as well as the build quality and batter life. The screen is excellent and I have moved across to using the Mac very easily indeed. I have to admit that I had always avoided trying Apple products thinking that this switch from Windows would be difficult but so far it hasn’t been.
The most difficult thing that I had to contend with so far is not being able to find the right click on the mouse for a popup menu. I use this feature in Windows all the time so not having it on the Mac was quite painful. Then I found the book “Switching to the Mac: The missing manual” on Amazon and everything has just clicked into place for me.
I also decided to check out Affinity Photo which a couple of people have mentioned to me as being great Mac software. I have to admit that they were not wrong. This is a great image editing package and if any of you Mac users are looking for an alternative to Photoshop, this is one package you really do need to check out.
So, now to the big decision. Do I swap the main business computer for a Mac as soon as funds allow? My answer at the moment is a most definite yes.
