Switching to the Mac: The Missing Manual
David PogueISBN: 0596004524; 9780596004521;
Apple's "Switch" campaign, aimed at Windows PC users who've had it to here with the complexity, intrusiveness, viruses and hassle of life in Windows, is having tremendous success. This concise, entertaining book from celebrated author and New York Times columnist David Pogue shows novices and power users alike how to convert from Windows to Mac quickly and easily. With refreshing humor and jargon-free prose, Pogue tells readers how to move their files, address book and email collection from a PC to the Mac; adapt to Mac versions of programs such as Microsoft Office, FileMaker, Photoshop, America Online and Quicken; find familiar controls in the new system; set up a network to share files with PCs and Macs; and adapt their old printers, scanners, and other peripherals. An important part of this book is Appendix B, the "Where'd It Go?" Dictionary, which includes an alphabetical listing of every familiar Windows feature, and where readers can find its equivalent in Mac OS X.
