Making the switch from Windows to OS X can be a pretty daunting task, especially if you’ve grown up using one system for your entire life. But migrating across to OS X doesn’t have to be difficult. Given the range of Mac programs now available and the better compatibility with existing Windows peripherals, such as mice and keyboards, it is a lot easier to do than it used to be, especially since the switch over to Intel-based systems.
There are plenty of rumours flitting around that may swing you towards not switching over to a Mac. Of course, opinions are strongly divided between Windows and OS X users, but I can tell you now that most of these rumours are wrong, so don’t let yourself be swayed by them.
One of the main reasons people hold back on switching to OS X is the lack of compatibility with Windows, however this is mostly untrue. Most common Windows programs have a separate Mac version and a lot of external peripherals (such as mice, keyboards, external hard drives and monitors) are fully compatible with OS X.
We recently worked with a client to migrate two of their Windows machines over to Mac, one a Dell laptop to a MacBook Pro and the other a Dell desktop to a MacMini. The process is fairly simple and, generally, can be completed by the even the most novice user. Our client, however, typically ask us to complete these type of projects for them because it’s less hassle for them and because, on the off chance there’s any issues, we can resolve any problems that arise during the migration process.
