Part of MacNation

October 31, 2007 — 1 Comment

If you’ve been following this blog, you know I was looking to switch from a Windows laptop to a Mac laptop. I finally made the switch in August to a MacBook Pro and couldn’t be happier.  I still need to use Windows once in a while for the courses I teach here at Biola, I also had Windows XP installed. I use the “Parallels” software to access my Windows platform and I have been truly amazed at how well it works. I can now have both Mac and Windows applications running side by side (in “parallel”) and switch back and forth between them seamlessly.  XP and OS/X share the same folder structure so I don’t need a separate Windows and Mac area on my disk.  I also do some consulting where I need to connect to a server via Windows remote desktop software over a VPN – and it works perfectly.

I believe that I am part of a larger trend of previous Windows users moving to the Mac platform. Hmm.  And Apple’s stock has gone from $88 to $188 in the past few months, too.
