New Mac PowerBook

Don’t know if I’m really ready for a full-blown “switch“, but I recently bought from a friend at work his old PowerBook G4. (He joined practically every other Mac user I know in buying a new MacBook Pro, so I’m benefiting from his castoff.)

I’ve been a Mac users off an on, but have never owned a decent one like this. There is no shortage of Mac users at work, so I’m getting the scoop on the “must have” software applications. This weekend’s trip to Gnomedex will be a good test as I go Windows-free for several days (which, for some reason, reminds me of a Ted Ferguson skit).
