So I did the switch. I’ve moved (most) of my files over to a refurbished Mac Mini which now resides on my desktop (actually sitting on top of my external DVD burner).
So far, I’ve been impressed, but not to the point of “oh my God, what have I done with my life!” type of psychosis some people have. Yes, the desktop is quite nice, and I’m sure it will be even nicer when I find my damn DVI cable.
But I’m not horribly impressed, most of what I did on XP I can do on a Mac. But since this meshes well with my KVM switch (unlike the eMac saga whih won’t be repeated in this case).
