Here is a great article on yet another user switching from a PC to a MAC


There is one thing I really do like about my new MacBook: It is a good laptop for running Vista (using Boot Camp), even if it is a bit expensive for that purpose considering its specs. But after two weeks of resisting, I am dropping back to Vista on my MacBook, at least during this critical week, when I will be covering both MacWorld and CES and will have no patience for a computer that gets in my way and apps that don't work the way they should. Vista and XP also run inside Mac OS X using virtualization apps like VMWare Fusion, which I have tried and find amazing--but a bit slow for production work. Upgrading my MacBook's memory may help performance, and I plan on giving that a try.

I still want to give myself more time to get comfortable with the Mac, but I don't know how much longer I'll be able to stand apps that don't work (like Aventail or HP's printer drivers) or an e-mail product that makes me less productive than Outlook. If I was starting from scratch and buying my first computer, or if neither I nor my wife worked for companies with entrenched non-Mac-friendly e-mail systems, I might be singing a different song. But we're not high school students, we're grownups with serious amounts of technological baggage. The Mac has not been treating us well as we've tried to switch.

Must be sad when one would rather use Vista than OS X on a MAC
