So, you’ve finally decided to switch to Mac OS X and your trying to figure out how to get around? I just helped my good friend Aeron through this experience and I’ve got a few notes to help you on your way.
The “Finder” is that funny looking face on the far left of your dock. To connect to a windows server, select “Go” and “Connect to Server”. In the Connect box, just type “smb://” then the IP address just like you would type in Windows.
Now you need to figure out what programs you’ll need to get by. • For video, check out VLC (freeware). • For MSN Instant Messaging, check out Adium X (freeware). • For web browsing, check out Camino. Based on Firefox, part of the Mozilla project but built for OS X (freeware). • Above all else, replace the Finder with Path Finder and use Quicksilver instead of Spotlight.
Enjoy you’re trip to Taiwan Aeron…
