For decays I’ve hated Windows. The numbers of hours I’ve spent trying to repair non working OS, Lost files after crashes, blue screens, the numbers of times I’ve used Ctrl + Alt + Del, reinstalling windows, formatted harddrives, yes they are more than the numbers of stars on heaven.
What actuality got me over the edge was a brand new Acer Laptop with Windows 8. Really to much, when a rather skilled person not even can find the way of shutting down a computer after the change from Windows 7 to Windows 8, well Microsoft has gone to far. Of course I found out after a while, but the meaning of Metro and touch screen I’ve not yet have understood the use of. Other than Microsoft gave Windows 8 the start button back, but Metro (the touch screen) and Desktop worked as two different operating systems. When either one had internet connection the other could fail on the same computer, with the same operation system and the same WIFI spot. Weird!
Well I lost it, my Acer with Windows is just a little more than one year. I went on the internet and bought a Macbook Air. Only to charge and pressthe power buttom and follow instructions. No big deal, but a part of that new installation was creating an Apple Account. Well I’ve chosed language, timezon and you name it. But the Apple id is an email address and where the hell to find @, I just couldn’t. I asked a couple of guys using Mac, didn’t work. After about three days I happend to find @ Shift + 2 and my yell surpriced my partner.
But happiness is short, I found out that I wasn’t able to write the special letter in Swedishwith dots over, Å, Ä and Ö. When I looked into the keyboard I found that the language US English was installed and changed it to Swedish. Well everything seemed to work, A good day at the work I thought until I tried to type (that f*****g @. It was lost and no keycombination was able tocreate it.
But what I had missed was beyond chosing Swedish was the ability to chose a pro version of Swedish keybord. And yes, there it was at the same place at on Windows.
Both @ and Å, Ä and Ö is there, OpenOffice and Dropbox are installed, I’m able to use my Mac almost fully, my printer is installed.
Yes guys, I’ve got Mac and i never will return!
