    I find the windows file system annoying.
    And creating folders can't be easier than the command-shift-n shortcut. I absolutely HATE having to right click and search for damnable create new folder button (or looking for it on a menu bar) Mind you that the same can be done on OS X, but shortcuts are far far far faster.

    As for the extra files, well, that's cause winblows systems can't read the resource fork, so that's why the see the extra files. Its something you get used to if you work cross platform.

    Thumbnails???? on a pc, one should always use the details view. That way you can see the file size...

    yup, to each his own... personal opinions You like prata, i like laksa...

    Sorry, but Mac OS X does not do that. If he was using iPhoto or Aperture, it might be different, but the system doesn't create those thumbnails by itself. The only hidden file I'm finding in any directory with .JPG files is .DS_Store, as usual.

    woah, but are there any virus scanners for leopard out there? i'm not really concerned about the laptop getting virus, but more of the laptop not being able to spot windows virus.

    I think that the biggest question is how much are you willing to spend?

    If you are willing or got money, why not and fulfill what you want, but if you're on a budget, look for the best alternative that fits into your budget.

    In the end, they're all the same. Gives the same output in the end...

    haha! no lah! i'm not talking about that. i'm talking more along the lines of unknowningly allowing my sis to spread windows viruses rather than the mac being infected itself. any virus scanners out there?

    oo oo, forgot to ask, anyone here uses the cheapest macbook(the 2.0 ghz)? how is its performance? being the cheapest, is the speed pretty slow, like taking a long time to bootup or run internet browser etc etc.

    I think it happens only when a Mac created file gets transfered to a Windows machine... but like Erenon mentions, we just have to be aware of it... they are quite obvious because they are much smaller...

Besides, Mac OS X seems faster with each release but the graphics are rather heavy on the system in Leopard.
    me I prefer Vista 64... stable, secure, and pretty fast (I prefer to switch off all the bells and whistles and graphics doodats)... but that's just me

    Intego VirusBarrier is probably the only one currently (easily) available and compatible with Leopard. I used another of their products years ago and I was pleasantly surprised by the way that product worked.
