    Even though my first PC was an Apple IIe, I eventually moved to an IBM PC AT and have been in the PC world ever since. And I've been a lifetime subscriber to Woody's newsletter going back a lot of years.

    But continuing PC frustrations have led me to seriously considering going back to Apple; especially now that there may actually be an Outlook for that platform.

    So does anyone know if there is a "Windows Secrets" equivalent in the Apple World? I'd like to do some research before I fall for "the grass is always greener" mentality.

    Thanks,

    Dennis

    I've done a number of searches without much in the way of results. Even if you find something in the searches, the quality if unknown. I was wondering if someone had personal experience, so they could recommend a quality product.

    Thanks,

    Dennis

    This isn't bad, but I doubt you'll find a quality equivalent.

    Clint,

    Thanks for the additional tips and the good reminder that I need to do a better job of tailoring my Google searches!

    If you do come across a realy decent Mac info site, post back and let us know.
    I've got a friend who recently switched to Mac, he's an OK guy, but he's dense when it comes to computers.

    I support both Macs and PCs in my job and have found Mac OS X Hints to be a valuable resource. No newsletter - more like the Lounge. Users helping users.
