By the way Alan , Office comes on mac as well
Ian, if you were ever well into MS Office then you'll find the mac version lacking.
e.g. It does not have Access (database), OneNote, Publisher. Some aspects of Outlook are different, such as archiving mail - in Mac it's all or none, but in Windows you can automate selections by year, etc.
A real killer for some time was the Office:mac activation system that complained that I had a different computer every time I connected or disconnected an eSATA drive. Grrrrr.
My intro to Mac was far from being a smooth one but that's behind me now. What peeves me most now is the increasingly compulsory need to use the cloud to link two Apple devices that are beside other instead of using a USB cable as I was able to do previously. e.g. try to sync the Notes or Reminders data without the cloud. Similar for Contacts data in the latest OS X. And it is so unnecessary to force it to work this way.
Also unnecessary is the dumbing down of Macs in terms of expansion ports, BD/DVD/CD burners, antiglare screen options, etc. - even the so-called pro models. I don't mind the top prices too much if I can get what I need and want but not for a computer that isn't what I want.
In terms of photo software the windows program that I miss most is Downloader Pro, which can automatically rename files using info in the photo file as well the parent folder name to give me a combined camera folder and image number. It can put the photos in the appropriate target folders too. Lr cannot do that without manual intervention. There's other stuff too but this was what I used for every image upload to my windows computer.
Anyway, enough whinging. People who like Macs tend to really like them a lot and so they're quite happy. That's a good thing and I hope it stays that way for you.
