Description

Windows users who are contemplating a change to the Mac might have a number of questions. What exactly will be gained and lost in the transition? What is involved in the actual transfer of an entire digital life? How can familiar workflows be recreated in the new environment? Instructor David Rivers answers all these questions, and many more, in Switching from Windows to the Mac. Unlike other basic Mac instruction, this course focuses on the similarities and differences between the two operating systems. David takes care to highlight the terminology and interface differences that can initially be mystifying for Windows users. He explores not only the software--Mac OS X Leopard and its bundled applications--but also important hardware subjects, like keyboard and mouse differences, and how to work with cameras and other peripherals. David also discusses how to run Windows on a Mac using Boot Camp or virtualization. Example files accompany the course.
