On Thursday, my new MacBook arrived, ending 20 consecutive years of being a PC guy. Â
My first computer was a PC XT running DOS 5.0 at 10mhz with a 30 megabyte hard drive that was “doubled” with Stacker 3.0 all the way up to 52 megabytes. Â The best piece of software on it was a program called DOS Master which was a shell that had a Tetris game hidden inside it. Â My main app was Varsity Scripsit which was made by Tandy and was a surprisingly powerful and usable bit of word-processing software.
After I took it out of the box and upgraded to Mountain Lion, I started to install some apps like Page, Keynote, and Numbers. Â I am trying out Mars Edit which I’ll be honest, isn’t as good as the Free Windows Essentials Writer and I have to payÂ $30 for it. Â I will try out Ecto out as well but I don’t have high hopes. Â The biggest thing that drives me crazy about Mars Edit is that it doesn’t do a good job handling images. Â Windows Essentials Writer allows you to easily crap and put cushions around photos and Mars Edit does none of that which is too bad. Â That being said it is easy to post with it so I am sure I will get used to it.
