yeah i know, that is the one frustrating thing about having a mac, but having a mac makes up for it ten fold. part of it also lies with the makers of software. just because apple don't have a decent market share of their units, it's natural that software manafacturers won't bother to invest time and money making something for an operating system that in percentage fewer people use. but i 'switched' to a mac knowing nothing about them, not even knowing the differences... and it took only a small amount of time to discover that the only hard thing about using a mac is going back to the start, and forgetting a lot of the windows stuff you pick up. they are so easy to use it makes windows feel like a marathon, and my partner is in design, and windows are crap at that. i agree with you though, now what did i say earlier??
