computernerd;4912153The mouse didn't have a right-click, it was a square that wherever you clicked it was left-click =p

Probably the one where you have to use two fingers. Lightly press your index finger on the left side, but do not "click". Then "click" with your middle finger on the right side of the button.

It should be pressure, or heat sensitive.

Once you get the hang of a Mac, they are a joy to use.

Instead of going to FF, you should have made the Mac talk. Using "SimpleText" (I forget what its going by these days.)

Also, Expose, Expose, Expose. Oh how I love Expose. Once you Expose your windows, you can never go back to Windows.

Seems kinda redundant, but I'll take your word for it ;)

Well, the traditional method of right-clicking on a Mac, is the following.

Ctrl-"Click"

That will bring up the context menu, as long as the context Menu is installed on the Mac in question, or it is an OS X series.

Nice one cumputernerd :P

Yeah I thought it was ctrl+click - or whatever key they use instead of ctrl. And the mac isn't all that bad. I for one love the colors of the UI except for the aqua blue. But ugh why did they put the dialog on left :~

That would be an interesting statistic to keep track of; to see who posts from the widest variety of locations.

I find the easiest way to close anything on a mac is just use the keyboard shortcut: Command (apple key) + Q

Some programs under OSX (like iTunes for example) won't actually completely close just be clicking the red close icon, it just closes that programs open window and leaves the process running in the background. Look at the dock to see what all is still running. Also, you can just right click the programs icon on the dock and click "Quit".

I love OSX, its actually my preferred OS for everything other than gaming.

Yeah, if I could I'd probably end up running it as my main OS.

Well the same goes for a number of programs on the pc. Although it's generally not the norm, and tends to be only true for programs that minimise to the tray.
