Switching from Windows to Mac

switch from windows to macMany people have grown up using only one system for their entire lives and for them it’s pretty daunting task to make the switch from Windows to OS X. However, migrating across the Mac does not have to be that difficult. Many programs and applications are now available for users to ease them the process of migration. Those who have ditched Windows for OS X say they had never regret it. If you are considering changing the system, here are some basic tip what should you do. Once you switch to Mac, you’ll enjoy it. If anything goes wrong, you can look for high quality Mac data recovery, so don’t worry.

First of all, back up all your files, your entire hard disk drive, in particular personal files. To be sure your files will be compatible with OS X, check if your drive is formatted in the FAT format. Even though it may seem to you that moving all setting and documents from Windows to Mac is a daunting task, luckily you’re wrong. Thanks to the wide range of useful software available on the web, this migration is fairly simple. There are many applications created to help users, but the cheapest and probably the best is Apple’s own application which you can download from their website, Migration Assistant.

OS X should be simple to use, but prepare for some quirks before getting used to it. Installing applications on your Mac goes like this. Almost every app comes as a disk image with the .dmg file extension and it has to be mounted. Mounting downloaded application can be done by double-clicking a disk image and it would pop up on a desktop. Also, it will take some time for your keyboard to get used to the switch, about couple of hours.

Once you’ve done it all, you can start using your brand new Mac! Good luck!
