My one month experience can be summed up as: not bad (translated to 'lumayan' in Indonesian). Owh I know you Mac fanboys (and fangirls) out there will shout at me (I got one already from a not-so-fanboy), but I did experience good and bad things in balance.
First of all, actually, no, I haven't got the chance to play a lot with Mimin. I was sort of too busy (yea yea) or too lazy to play with her. I'll come back to this later.
I like the intuitive touchpad. Looks minor but I always hate touchpads before. Can't work with them. For tricky jobs such as movie editing, I probably still prefer a mouse. But for usual jobs, touchpad works flawlessly.
On the downside, I don't like the keyboard shortcuts. Not the keyboard shortcuts per se, but how they often are different from their windows (and linux) counterparts for the same programs. It's confusing because I use windows at the office and I have to get used to two sets of different shortcuts. I didn't have this problem with ubuntu before. And while we're at it, why Mac refuse to have a 'delete' button is still a mystery to me.
Since I mentioned movie editing, up to this point I don't like iMovie. Unlike other mac experiences, iMovie is counter-intuitive for me. Maybe I should give it another go. Last time, I gave up and used Kdenlive on mprit instead.
But I like that everything comes out of the box. Software installation is one of the best experiences. Although I was still a linux newbie and cheated with debs all the time, still installing from scratch in ubuntu was sort of on one extreme and drag-and-drop installation in macosx is on the other extreme. Both are cool and compared to them, windows installation was completely pain in the a**.
With this in mind, you probably understand why I don't like installing micro$oft office. That one can't live without microsoft office is just a fact like Al Gore's nobel prize, so I even had it on ubuntu. Actually, since I do need it, I don't mind buying a copy
And yes, that's the thing. I'm not in the mood for playing and tweaking at this moment. Initially I wanted to install ubuntu lucid or maverick. Haven't tried any of them yet. What I did try once was linux mint julia. Kind of cool, I like the look and lots of other things. LiveCD didn't give a full experience and some stuffs still boggle me. I was thinking of trying opensuse as well. Lots of playing stuffs, just not there yet. Such a pity because this is where 30 Mbps can be really of use, but yeah, that's that. We'll see in a couple of months or so.
The Office 2011 trial version is finally released, but I still can't install it. The activated code is restored in cache somewhere and I can't find it. Oh well...
FINALLY I conquer macrosoft. Oh I'm so happy word(s) just fail me :)
