Thinking of Switching from Windows to Mac?

July 14, 2008 Leave a comment

Two terrific articles for those of you considering a move from a Windows PC to a Mac.

First, Walt Mossberg posted a helpful article with some basic tips to help a new Mac user who has been accustomed to the Windows way of doing things.  It’s at All Things Digital.

Second, if you want a more complete article about making the switch, Peter Bright is in the middle of a multi-part series at Ars Technica about his “conversion” from Windows to Mac.  If you want the behind-the-scenes story, including some Apple and Microsoft history, check it out.  It is lengthy, but so far it has been worth the read.

Bill Gates Leaves Microsoft with a Practical Joke?

June 27, 2008 Leave a comment

Bill Gates was understandably upset today as he handed over the keys to the Microsoft kingdom to Steve “Monkey Boy” Ballmer.  I would have cried, too.  This will only accelerate Microsoft’s downward slide.

I guess the question at this point becomes, “Which will be more embarrassing for Microsoft:  Steve Ballmer or Vista?”

Just in case you haven’t seen it, here is one of Ballmers defining moments at a developers conference a couple of years ago (I have never watched the whole thing… it’s too painful).

…..

Well, best of luck to Bill and his foundation, regardless.
