Welcome to the light side Jedi.

It's going to take a bit to relearn some stuff, but with a fleet of iPods, I figured it was time to make the jump.

The biggest mistake I've made in learning Macs and associated software is to look for complexity that isn't there.
Because I move between the two OS's often, I tend to carry the microsoft 'nothing is easy, everything requires 20 stages' to the MAC's 'one-click' origins.
The simple answer is the one the Mac programmers invariably use.
Also, be aware that because they aren't big and flashing, doesn't mean they aren't buttons. Look carefully at all the boxes on each of the windows that open.

Congratulations, Sir! What is the configuration?

It's the base 24" iMac model - 2.66 GHz processor, 640GB HD, 4GB RAM. I've got Parallels w/XP installed so that way I can run some of my Windows specific software still as we make the transition and in case the wife has a hard time making the change.

I haven't used an Apple since the '80s, we're talking Apple II+ and Laser 128, ancient machines. Never got on the Mac bandwagon. Mostly I feel like this guy: One thing PC users can do that Mac users can't... (http://www.thebestpageintheuniverse.net/c.cgi?u=macs_cant) :))
