I Miss My PC!

I promised myself that I wouldn't take my Dell Inspiron 1405 (my beloved Dell!) out of my backpack all weekend -- that I MUST learn to use this MacBoob (too good a typo to fix!), come hell or high water.

Yeah, after a weekend of frustration, I've changed my tune.

Intuitive? BULL! How am I supposed to know that in order to eject a peripheral on a Mac you drag its icon to the TRASH?! That's not something I'd think to do... or risk experimenting with! I bought myself a Macs for Dummies book yesterday, but I have so much to do that I don't have time to read it -- only to refer to it in a panic. Constantly.

But I did get through the weekend without unpacking my (beloved) Dell laptop PC. When I do unpack it again, I'll lovingly toss confetti over it.

How long is it supposed to take for me to fall in love with a Mac again? Please remind me. And if anyone has a friendly way for me to get to know this strange machine, please do let me know! I'm not adverse to a love affair; I just have yet to feel any chemistry.

I love love LOVE my Mac and they'll have to pry my cold, dead fingers from it's keyboard one day. Bring the "little guy" over if you want and I'll show you what I can! :)

My experiences with Macs are they certainly are not user-friendly, and they glitch like crazy--far more than my PC ever has or did, no matter how low the ratio of RAM to program demands got.

Funnily enough, these are the same complaints Mac users make about PCs.
