After i bought my Ipad, i recognised windows is a trashcanOriginally Posted by AlanfujiiI have been a PC user since the Apple IIe. I bought the Macbook Pro because at the time it was the most powerful laptop. I run a CAD package that needs the power. I initially partitioned the Macpro to a minimum Mac and maximum Windows. I installed Vista and eventually gave up and went back to XP. In the process I re-formatted the drive to be half Mac and half Windows. I use the Mac side for iTunes and all photos and videos and the Windows side for everything else. I have to admit that being a PC user for all these years I do not find the Mac very intuitive especially in file organization.
That would probably be it but what has started the conversion process for me started with the iPhone. I was an avid Palm user but after waiting for the Palm Pre and being disappointed I broke down and bought an iPhone. I was very impressed with the sophistication of the UI. Apple really had something. The can find iPad is just a continuation of Apple choosing to develop a new way for people to interface with their devices. Hey, I'm now an Apple convert! I'm still stuck with the Windows side for business especially because my CAD package will never run on the MAC side. Slowly, I'm replacing PC programs with programs from Apple. I would give up MS Office if Apple ported iWorks. I actually think Apple would do well since it would allow people to go back and forth from the iPad. iWorks is just enough without all the baggage that I never use anyway with MS Office. Apple may found a way to break Microsoft's strangled-hold although I think Apple is after bigger game. They may have found the solution for the central home communication system. Apple TV, iPad and iPhone all using iOS.
