What will I lose?
I have been reading this forum and several others for about three months. Now, as entertaing and informative as they are, it seems that majority of people are mostly interested in hardware rumors and their distain for windows or anything Microsoft. Granted, I enjoy that too, as I have been waiting for the elusive updates. I have to buy, updates are not. However, I now need to know what will I lose in switching to Mac. It seems to me that when questions arise as to compatibility problems, most posters like to glaze over and minimize the possible conflicts and turn to the positives of Mac OSX and or the attractiveness of the form factor. I agree Mac is better. I started with Mac when laser printers were $6000.00. I switched to windows around '96 because of incompatibility with the internet. I know most hardware problems can be overcome, but I have questions related to the web. Will I encounter web site page incompatibilily, download problems, Windows Media Player, RealOne or anything else? If so, will these problems be addressed in the near or immediate future. If not IE, what about Mozilla? Does this alleviate conflicts in web pages? Please, any information will be helpful. Thank you in advance.
