I wish Spotlight worked on my Windows XP machine.

Boot from Firewire to reclone an internal drive

by BrokenEagle In reply to Apples and Orange

I wish PCs running Windows had the option to boot from an external drive connected to a firewire port like Macs do.<br /><br />I wish Windows had a program like Carbon Copy Cloner.

Why can't Apple build a decent mouse?

by BrokenEagle In reply to Apples and Orange

It is hard to believe that  Apple can't make a mouse with a right mouse button or a scroll wheel.<br />If you are a Macophile and don't know what I am talking about, hold the Ctrl Key and click.  You will see the same thing you will see if you put a decent mouse (a two button mouse with a scroll wheel) and right-click.

Save As

by BrokenEagle In reply to Apples and Orange

I wish the Save As function in OS X applications defaulted to a Finder-like view rather than just listing the last several folders you saved to.

Flight Simulator

I wish OS X had a [good] flying simulator like Microsoft's or Flight Simulator or Combat Flight Simulator.

Worst of Both Worlds

by BrokenEagle In reply to Apples and Orange

Windows XP running on an Apple?  Big deal!  I'd rather run OS X on my homebuilt PC.

Got new Intel-based iMacs at work today

by BrokenEagle In reply to Apples and Orange

We got new Intel-based iMacs at work today. We set one up to learn about them and decide how to configure them for our student computer lab. We are quite pleased with them.<br /><br /><br />Transferring applications from an older Mac was much simpler than the same process on my Mom's new Dell.

Mac OS X 10.4 Server

by BrokenEagle In reply to Apples and Orange

We have had the Tiger (10.4) version of the Mac server running for about a month at work.  The improved Server Admin tools are well worth the cost of the upgrade.<br /><br />The server upgrade was seamless on the client side.<br /><br />We also upgraded Apple Remote Desktop for our clients from version 1.1 to 3.0.  Another greatly improved product.  I am sure someone has a comparable product for Windows, but I doubt they can match Apple's price for the features.

xcopy

by BrokenEagle In reply to Apples and Orange

I wish it was this easy to create a batch file on Macs to automate backups as on a Windows machine.<br /><br />Listing 1<br />_________________________________________________________________________________________<br />Set username=johndoe<br /><br />xcopy C:\Documents and Settings\%username%\My Documents\*.* \\Server\Share\%username%\My Documents\*.* /s/c/f/h/k/v/m/y<br />_________________________________________________________________________________________
