I’m excited about the computer they gave Ellen at UGA – it’s a Mac with OS X! I’m going to Athens with her tomorrow, and while she’s in a meeting I’m going to see how it’s set up and see what I can do to make the Win-Mac transition easier for her. She’s already started using FileMaker Pro (she needed a cross-platform database app since she has XP at home) and likes it very much. So, no “there’s no Access on the Mac” issues.
Here’s a list of links that I hope will be of use:
O’Reilly’s Mac Directory
O’Reilly’s Ease into the Switch, which includes a nice printable guide to keyboard shortcuts.
Here’s Apple’s switching guide and their Switch Support site, with more specifics.
Here’s a tip: put the Applications folder in the Dock so all apps are easy to find.
We need to get her a USB key too.
