I feel like I'm cheating on my wife!!!

Today @ pretty much 1200 the doorbell rang and that is when it all started. I just got my very first macbook pro and very first mac based computer (I come from the linux world). I immediately fell in love with it and now the problem is is that everytime I use it I feel like I'm cheating on my wife LOL.

So excited can't wait to see what this little wonder can do!!!!

any tips for a beginner like me ie websites, applications etc...

Thanks
J

Welcome! When your wife sees the new unit, she'll agree to an open marriage, I'll bet.

It's good to have a unit that works well.

Congrats on your purchase, and since your wife will want one soon too you'll want to bookmark the Apple Store! Seriously though, you may want to look at iWork, it's fantastic and reasonably priced. There is also a pretty decent collection of software Here

I find Mac Freeware handy from time to time.

As a linux user, you might be interested in Darwin Ports.

Welcome!

Since nobody else has suggested it, I recommend installing Flip4Mac WMV Player and Perian to allow QuickTime to play most of the non-standard Windows video codecs. You'll also want a handy copy of VLC, but I'm sure you're familiar with it.

Congrats!

The same thing happened to me when I got my first Mac, almost two years ago.
