hi all
what a wonderful site you all have here! i've just joined and am already glad that i did.
about me: i'm from india and a writer by profession. i've recently switched to a windows based notebook (compaq V2317 - P4 centrino, 1.86 Ghz...) after having used macs all my life. and boy am i up against it! such a complex piece of machinery (i'm not saying it's bad or anything) and with my level of technical skill (read zilch) i'm completely stumped on a fairly regular basis. so now you can understand how a site like this can feel like a heaven sent to me.
once again a big hello to you all, and hope to interact more often with all.

Welcome to BC!
Going from Macs to PCs can be confusing, so take some spare time and read some of the Tutorials; they will get you "up to speed" on some of the Windows differences. Using Windows will require more attention to PC security, so make sure you have many layers, beginning with a firewall, an anti-virus, and several good spyware applications at hand.
Don't hesitate to post about any questions you may have.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
