Switching to the Mac, The Missing Manual

Creator: David Pogue, Adam Goldstein | Computers - 2005

Demonstrates how to become adjusted to the Macintosh operating system and how to transfer data from a Windows system to a Macintosh, discussing topics such as moving files and Macintosh equivalents to Windows-only programs.

Publisher: O'Reilly Media, Inc.

About this book
It's little wonder that longtime Windows users are migrating in droves to the new Mac. They're fed up with the virus-prone Windows way of life, and they're lured by Apple's well-deserved reputation for producing great all-around computers that are reliable, user-friendly, well designed, and now--with the $500 Mac mini--extremely affordable, too. Whether you're drawn to the Mac's stability, its stunning digital media suite, or the fact that a whole computer can look and feel as slick as your iPod, you can quickly and easily become a Mac convert. But consider yourself warned: a Mac isn't just a Windows machine in a prettier box; it's a whole different animal and a whole new computing experience. If you're contemplating--or have already made--the switch from a Windows PC to a Mac, you need Switching to the Mac: The Missing Manual, Tiger Edition. This incomparable guide delivers what Apple doesn't: everything you need to know to successfully and painlessly move to a Mac. The latest reprint of this book has been updated to reflect the new generation of Mac models that run on Intel chips. There's even a new appendix that guides you through the installation of Windows XP on your Macintosh (using adapter software like Boot Camp or Parallels), so that you have the best of all worlds: a single, beautiful machine that can run 100 percent of the world's desktop software. Missing Manual series creator and bestselling author David Pogue teams up with 17-year-old whiz kid and founder of GoldfishSoft ( Adam Goldstein to cover every aspect of switching to a Mac--things like transferring email, files, and addresses from a PC to a Mac; getting acquainted with the Mac's interface; adapting to Mac versions of familiar programs (including Microsoft Office); setting up a network to share files with PCs and Macs; and using the printers, scanners, and other peripherals you already own. Covering the latest in Mac OS X v.10.4 "Tiger," Switching to the Mac: The Missing Manual, Tiger Edition explains the hundreds of innovative new features to the Mac OS and how you can understand and make the very most of each. Whether you're a novice or a power user, Switching to the Mac: The Missing Manual, Tiger Edition, teaches you how to smoothly and seamlessly replace (or supplement) your Windows machine--in a refreshingly funny and down-to-earth style--with a mighty Mac.

I hate to say it, but I feel like the bad reviews are coming from people that do not know what they are doing in regards to setting up a server. This is a much improved implementation of server software over 10.4. Clean interface and very easy to use assuming you understand DNS, OD, WGM, and so on. As a Macintosh Consultant I have installed and setup several servers running 10.5 and they have all ran very smooth with very minimal downtime. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , October 29, 2008

    Resource hog but otherwise great game

    Disclosure: I'm a huge fan of all the Heroes of Might & Magic (HoMM) games going back to HoMM1, AND, I'm a huge fan of Macs, so much so that I don't use a Windows machine at home. For me, I *had* to buy this game simply to "vote with my dollars" and encourage future Mac HoMM development. But, I will try to put aside my biases and rate the game on its own merits.If you are unfamiliar with HoMM games, stop reading this review and *run* to buy HoMM2 and HoMM3 immediately for the Windows platform. (Why not get them for Mac? More on this later.) I won't get too involved in describing the games, as there are plenty of sites with great descriptions. HoMM games are turn-based strategy in a fantasy setting. The player manages heroes, armies, castles, resources, artifacts, spells, and quests, and competes with other human or AI players to conquer the map. As heroes gain experience, their primary stats improve, and they can learn specialty skills that help them in unique... 4/5 Rorke Haining (Seattle) - See all my reviews, August 28, 2007

    Lots of Fun, Just not Perfectly Tuned

    Heroes of Might and Magic V (HOMM5) is an amazing game. Its everything you would expect from a HOMM game and more, although the Mac version is somewhat lacking. Of primary concern is the fact that the game doesn't come with a Map Editor since the PC version of the game didn't have one either while the game was being ported to the Mac. It is still possible to use maps made by PC users that are posted online, but it would still be nice to be able to create/edit your own.Another large problem with the game is that it likes to crash. A lot. It doesn't matter what your computers specs are, the game is going to crash after prolonged periods of play. In my case it usually happens every two hours or so. Of course all you have to do is start up the game again and continue from the last autosave so you never really lose that much, but it is still definitely a hassle that makes the game somewhat less enjoyable.Ignoring the downsides, the game has an excellent... 4/5 J.

It appears that whatever registering agency that once existed is no longer out there. I've contacted the company via their product support web page and they never responded. Further investigation on their page reveals that they don't support this game anymore.It's not that I have the wrong code. If I type in a random code, it says so. But if I put in the correct code, it loops back to have me type it again.The product is worth less than a blank disk. Even a blank disk can be used to burn info onto.

This review is from: Dash & Dream Bonus 5 Pack: Diner Dash 5 Boom, Dream Chronicles 1 & 2, Avenue Flo, Hotel Dash, Wedding Dash (CD-ROM) This product does not work successfully on mac computers. It works perfectly fine on a PC, but the mac treats them as free trials, and one of the games said that the free trial has expired without anyone previously playing it. It also told me that for each one, I have to buy the games when I already bought them. Only buy this product if you have a PC, because even though it says it works on macs, it really doesn't. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , September 8, 2014

    0 1/5 Bill Crowson "xplorer3" (Tullahoma, TN, USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Prince of Persia - Mac (Video Game) I have to rank this game low because I never could get it to run properly on my new MacBook computer, in spite of the fact that it met the stated system requirements of "Mac X 10.5.6 OR HIGHER". I have Mac X 10.6.4, so it should have worked. After sending several emails to UBISOFT, as directed in the manual, I finally was told:"Unfortunately the laptop versions of the video chipset are not supported. The nVidia 320M came out after the release of the game and was never tested with the software, as well as Snow Leopard. The franchise has moved forward and is no longer creating patches for the older titles."So my time and money were wasted. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , September 5, 2010

We all know that Mac user get the short end when it comes to gaming.

The story is fun, the characters are beautiful, and the monsters are straight up scary. The level of play was challenging enough to be interesting without being frustrating, and the problem-solving aspects of the game are well-crafted.

    0 4/5 Eric Janssen - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Game Of Life: Path To Success - Mac (Video Game) If you're a fan of the classic board game of Life, you probably found this one while looking for the original on Mac disk--Unfortunately, this isn't it: If you look closer at the title, it's not the Game of Life, but "Game of Life: Paths to Success", a Hasbro marketing spinoff in which they copied the popular "Nanny" time-management games, and added a Game of Life motif (the cars, the spinner) for iconic value. Players move up through the stages of college, marriage, etc., as they rush about rooms to complete tasks in the time allowed. A ripoff?--Oh, maybe, but the game's not a bad addiction for what it is, just so long as you know which game it is you're playing. A "true" version of the classic Life board game for Mac is available as download from the various casual-gaming sites, but seems to be only available on disk for Windows. As it is, Mac users looking for Millionaire Acres may be in for a bit of frustration here. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , December 4, 2011
