    After allot of savings i finally got my macbook, my old PC died so i couldn't really be active on here what so ever.

    I got the macbook with 2gb ram, 160gb HD, 13'' screen. With that i got my self the Airport express router, a new printer, and iWork.

    I couldn't be happier with my purchase but just like every new Mac user im not all there when it comes to operating this machine. Like msn messenger i can only mount it? and not install it? its really weird after every restart i gotta load up msn to use it.

    So what can i do with this machine, i wanna do professional photo editing, Audio Editing and maybe some games here or there. I checked out that page that Teslanaut setup but it doesn't really help much.

    Another question when i download *******s do i have to specifically look for Mac supporting files, lets say i want Photoshop, would i download just the photoshop like for windows or is there a mac specific ******* i need. Thanx guys

    as for *******s , download transmission and find *******s.

    Programs i recomend
    Skitch - Simple Screen Capture
    CollyQ - IRC
    Firefox - YOU KNOW WHAT THIS IS
    Crossover - Run window apps in OSX
    Adium - ALL IN ONE INSTANT messenger client , Open Source -

    Limewire has an OSX client and if you run Limewire on OSX you aren't cool. It shoudl be written somewhere.

    Also, Crossover is nice if you have small things to run and feel like waiting 15 minutes to get them to boot up.

    crossover isnt that effective. and mac uses different file types than windows. so before you download something i would recommend checking its for mac. i would recommend aperture for professional photo editing and logic pro 8 for recording and audio editing

    Drag the messenger icon into your applications folder.
    Anyway, aMSN > Microsoft messenger

    If you hold tight, I can put a vid up on youtube explaining about the best apps and how to install them and stuff.

    Anything that isn't Limewire or Azereus.
