O'Reilly Publishes 'Switching to the Mac: The Missing Manual, Tiger Edition'

Technical book publisher OiReilly on Tuesday announced the publication of Switching to the Mac: The Missing Manual, Tiger Edition, a 520-page tome that covers the ins and outs of switching from using a Windows computer to one running Mac OS X v10.4 "Tiger." Authors David Pogue and Adam Goldstein note: "When it comes to their missions and ideals, Apple and Microsoft have about as much in common as a melon and a shoehorn."

Topics covered include: moving software, settings and peripherals to the new computer; finding Internet settings in Windows and entering them on the Mac; and how to become a "power user." Two appendices handle troubleshooting and installation, while a third explains Mac keystrokes.
