I switched from Windows to Mac last September and have never looked back! I don't play games, I have my iPad for that, just do a lot of photo editing as I sell on eBay. I've found comparable programs for the mac to take the place of the windows ones I used. So my Vista desktop has started collecting dust!! The only thing I am missing at this point is Quicken for my checkbook. I just haven't had time to look at the mac options yet.
There's a Quicken version for Mac, which will probably happily use your current data file. I've used MYOB for 20 years for my business.

I've been a Mac user since April 1986 and my production machine here is a MacBook Pro on which I do graphic design for a couple of clients I've had for many years. At work for much of the past 22 years, I've used and supported PCs. The last time I had to get any repairs done on any of my Apple equipment was in about 1998, I think. Total repairs in 26 years is 2 power supplies (my original Mac Plus which had no cooling fan), 2 floppy drives (Mac IIci that drew its cooling system air through the floppy drive!) and the last, which was a dodgy controller on a Mac Pro. The HP and Dell desktops and laptops I worked with in the last 6 years were much more likely to need reimaging, or hardware repairs, or even just spit the dummy for no apparent reason. My test PC was used a lot more for remote problem-solving and fixing (sometimes over slowish microwave links) than actual testing of new client versions of the library management system I was managing.

So I think the Mac is better value for money, especially if you're using a computer to earn a living.

However, even the reliability issue isn't the main thing for me. I just prefer to work with Macs. Other people prefer to work with Windows or Linux. Thank goodness for this, because the competition fuels development.

I'm beginning to subscribe to the theory others here have described, i.e. there's no rhyme or reason to this disease.

No, just no rhyme or reason ( funny same expression in Swedish "rim eller reson"). Just the other morning an extreme spike 9.7. By far highest since I got my meter 3 months ago. Actually called my "diabetessköterska" (diabetes nurse) and she couldn´t give any explanation to the spike. She just said that this could sometimes happen and if I got the same figures more than one or two times a month I should contact her again. Also saying that my latest A1C in december was perfect. Next check will be in the end of May.

Sometimes even lower values after a meal than in the morning.
Well I guess it´s best to have a quite low and steady sugar. Usually have values less than 6 even after a meal.

That's where I'm at. We can only keep doing our best, the rest is out of our control.

A 4.9 this morning.
