The Switch Pt 1

I’m going to do it. I can’t hold back any longer- it simply must be done.

I’m going to switch to a Mac.

Yup.

Now that I’ve made the decision, it really gets interesting. I’ve been hesitating for quite awhile as switching for me is a big deal (and not just for my ego).

Here’s the steps I see in switiching:

The easy part:

  1. Take a deep breath. Exhale.
  2. Buy a pimped out MacBook Pro.

The hard part:

  1. Get a two button mouse (must have right click)
  2. Cross platform upgrade my Adobe apps to Mac
  3. Somehow get a Mac license for Sorenson squeeze
  4. Figure out how I’m going to get all my email moved over
  5. See if I can transfer my Office license to Mac
  6. Find the best Windows emulation software for OS X (so I can still run Sony Vegas as needed)
  7. Figure out how to transfer about 480 GB of data on external and internal NTFS drives to HFS formatted drives (yikes!)
  8. Sell my notebook
  9. Sell my desktop
  10. Breath a sigh of relief

Am I forgetting anything? I’m sure I am…
