Idiot Guide to Macs

We're a PC family. But we have three students whose educational establishments are all Mac-based and use Mac software. Some of which has no good PC substitute/is incompatible with anything else. So we were thinking of adding a Mac to the stable. Cost would be a factor.


...thank you

I would encourage you to look into desktop virtual environments.

I know you can emulate a Windows PC on a virtual machine inside a Mac, so I assume you'd be able to do the same in reverse.
There's a level of facility that everyone needs to accomplish, and from there
it's a matter of deciding for yourself how important ultra-facility is to your
expression. ... I found, like Joseph Campbell said, if you just follow whatever
gives you a little joy or excitement or awe, then you're on the right track.
