New tutorial for switchers

This one looks really easy and would be great for casual computer users switching from Windows to Mac!

It's an interactive tutorial video tutorial for Mac OS X orientation that uses side-by-side comparisons between Windows and Mac OS X. This is great for Windows users who can watch how it's done in Windows and then watch -- and then try within the program -- how to do it in OS X. So, they've always got a familiar starting point from which to learn from.

There is a free demo available to see how it works, and the cost for the full OS X tutorial is US$30.00. Unfortunately, the program is only Mac OS compatible, but to you folks still using Windows but are interested in the Mac, this tutorial appears to be very clear, very step-by-step... and very good!

They also have a tutorial for iPhoto, and I'm sure they'll be putting out more.

PS: Over at a PC forum that Ottawman, Groovetube, myself and more recently Vexel sometimes frequent, we set up a forum thread of any valuable OS X tutorials that we find. You might want to keep this URL handy (feel free to add to it!) to pass on to new users.

Great. I could sure use a tutorial for "getting video files to play in Quicktime player rather than in a small window in my browser".

It's funny that it's only Mac OS compatible. I guess it's their way of "sticking it to the man" :) Why would a Mac user want to compare Mac OS and windoz for god's sake!

I'm gonna check out your link to the tutorials right away, thanks!

It's for new Mac users -- new Mac users as in EX-WINDOWS users. It makes sense to me for a rather larghe segment of PC users out there. Bear in mind that -- as far as I see it -- this is for "normal" PC users out there who are not savvy computer users, decided to go with a Mac, boot it up and go, "Uh... now what?" This gives new Mac users a sense of security, I would say.
