OK, I'm sure this has been done many times before, but I'm going to do it again for the hell of it.
COMMON MAC MYTHS DEBUNKED
I. The one-button mouse.
Yes, Apples come with a mouse that only has one button. Allow me to demonstrate the process of making a 2-button mouse work on a Mac:
1. Unplug the 2-button mouse from your PC.
2. Plug it into your Mac.
Do I need to repeat that so you can take notes?
I think most people don't realize they can do this. If you think your PC's 2-button mouse looks ugly next to your gorgeous G5, MacMice
has a very nice 2-button-plus-scroll-wheel mouse that looks quite similar to Apple's cute one-button mouse.
II. No software.
I've used a Mac exclusively for several months, probably upwards of 10 hours a day, every day; never have I run into a software need a few google searches didn't cure. I prefer quality over quantity, and I recently ran across the most accurate quote regarding Mac's software library so far:
One relatively common notion about Mac OS X seems to be that there's not a lot of software for it. While it is true that the quantity of software available for Mac OS X is not as large as, say, that on Windows or Linux, I believe the software that does exist for Mac OS X provides you as much functionality, if not more, as software on any other platform.
In other words, Instead of having 435 available programs that do the same thing crappily, you tend to have 4 or 5 that do it really well.
