PCMag: switching to Mac

PC Magazine software expert Robyn Peterson has answered 'the five questions most frequently asked by recent Mac converts' who are pondering a potential switch from Microsoft Windows to Mac OS X. "When Apple switched to Intel processors, I switched to a Mac," Peterson wrote. "It was that simple. And judging by Apple's latest financial report, millions of you are coming with me." The five questions include "where's the start menu?," "where's my right mouse button?," "how do I install apps?," "how do I search for files or apps?," and "where's the C: drive?" Answering these questions in order reveals the presence of Finder windows as well as the system dock, control-clicking with built-in support for two-button mice, drag-and-drop application installation, Spotlight, and terminal windows alongside Finder navigation.
