Thanks for the responses, Hank and Melissa. Hank - I already back up my stuff on a memory stick, so maybe I am OK there. I have been using CorelDRAW8 a lot and I might have to replace it if it is not compatible with a MAC but I want to switch to PaintShop PRO anyways so I guess it won't matter as long as I can open my Corel files on the MAC. Most everything has been converted to TIFF or JPEG format anyways. Compatibility is such a PAIN. All I really want to do is PAINT!!!
When switching from PC to Mac, you'll find that if you stop thinking so hard about what you are trying to do, the simple solution will become apparent.
There are some business programs that are only written for PC, and there are programs like QuickBooks that have a Mac version that is a little quirky, and there are some websites that don't play nicely with Macs. Like FedEx: if you have a business account with them, you will not be able to fill out shipping labels on line via your Mac. And Blackberry, which does not support Blackberry OS updates via Mac, so you'll have to find a friend with a PC if you need to do that. But those are the only two of note that I've found lately. The reliability of my Macs, and the reliability of Apple's customer service, more than make up for those holdouts.
