OiReilly & Associates has published a new book dedicated to Switchers and the ongoing exodus to the Mac platform. Written by David Pogue, the well known Mac guru, "Switching to the Mac: The Missing Manual" aims to ease the transition and fears found in deeply entrenched Windows users. According to OiReilly & Associates:
Since Apple released the latest version of its operating system, Mac OS X, many Windows users have been tempted to make the switch, especially since the computer industry is such that new advances make upgrading to new software and hardware inevitable every few years anyway.
Mac OS X is not only a hit among traditional Mac fans, the system has attracted longtime PC users.
Mac OS X is not only a hit among traditional Mac fans, the system has attracted longtime PC users. Appleis iApps--iMovie, iPhoto, iTunes, iDVD, iCal, and more--add urgency to the desire to cross platforms to take advantage of the array of useful tools available for Mac users only.
However, lack of logistical information has been a serious roadblock, preventing many a potential Mac convert from taking the technical leap. "Switching to the Mac: The Missing Manual", takes the questions, dread, and frustration out of moving to the Mac.
Switching to the Mac is a subject near and dear to author David Pogueis heart. Pogue, a bestselling Mac author ("Mac OS X: The Missing Manual"), co-wrote "Crossing Platforms" years ago for OiReilly in an effort to smooth user transition between Mac and Windows.
