I’ve been forced to use a Mac for a few weeks, and as a diehard Windows user, the Mac has been driving me crazy. “Where did my window go?”  “Why can’t I get the Finder to act like Windows Explorer?”  “What programs are running?”  (Macs are sooooo intuitive, my eye!)

I just discovered that Lynda.com has a series of videos for Windows users who are learning to use a Mac. Log into Lynda.com with your UUA account and search for “switching from Windows to Mac.” There are also training videos for Microsoft Office 2011 for Mac (search for “office for mac”). Finally, I found a list of keyboard shortcuts, which make the Mac more PC-like.

I’m starting to get the hang of it!
