Here's a presentation I gave for ETC at Missouri State University. It's for Mac users on campus — it can be difficult to connect to campus resources or to get all the resources you need to run a Mac on campus. This presentation takes a few steps to help remedy that.

No notes for slide
  • Last year: dual-booting
    Covers that but goes beyond it
    Don’t need Windows to accomplish everything!
  • Out in the lab I get varying degrees of frustration from patrons
  • First level: absolute insanity
    In a rush? Hate Macs?
  • Next: regular Windows user
    Can’t get around on Macs? Have to use one for class?
  • Next: new Mac owners get this
    Somebody just sitting down at a Mac
    Overwhelmed?
  • You’ve got your Mac, you’ve used it for a while
    Most campus is Windows-centric: computers, file servers, printers, labs
    Some Mac instructions exist (more than before)
  • Total Mac geek: mastered everything
    Ready to oust Jobs as CEO
  • BRIEF history
    Touch on some myths that should be set straight
    Overcome the Mac/Windows deal
    Please interrupt me — flows better with q’s
  • Sweet Mac OS — general look didn’t change for about years
  • Sweet Windows OS: looked like this until 3.0, then again revamped in 95; motif is the same with Win95 as it is today in Win7
  • In brief, Microsoft has the upper hand because they sell to large businesses: major clients
  • Apple is working its way into Corporate America’s hearts and minds
  • They can exist rather peacefully on campus
    They can do everything you need them to do — and even more
    If you have a Mac, you can tackle anything
  • Gonna cover some of my favorite myths about Mac and Windows together
    Most used to be true; roots in pre-OS X days
  • Get this a lot in the lab: most file formats work peacefully
    If you use a Mac program to make something, you can easily export that work into a cross-platform format
  • Macs can work just fine with Windows
    Apple was first to market with TCP/IP system
  • Like every computer: prone to crashes
    Crashes less because hardware & software is picked by Apple (think if Dell made their own OS)
  • No longer the closed, one-track systems they used to be
    OS X is an advanced UNIX-03 OS with tons of under-the-hood nerd potential
  • Apple Tax: they’re too much money for what they are
    When you price out Macs and, say, a Dell, Macs are often cheaper
    Apple doesn’t compete in the low end with Dell and other PC makers

  • The meat of the presentation
    When you can’t find what you’re wanting to run, just run another OS
  • You can have Apple
    with Windows
    even a Linux or BSD system
    Intel chips run it all
  • You can have Apple
    with Windows
    even a Linux or BSD system
    Intel chips run it all
  • You can have Apple
    with Windows
    even a Linux or BSD system
    Intel chips run it all
  • You can have Apple
    with Windows
    even a Linux or BSD system
    Intel chips run it all
  • If any of you are familiar with Tron Guy
  • One of the most popular: run Mac and another OS at same time
    VMware Fusion at v3, Parallels at v4
    Try VirtualBox, if you like it, try VMware: I recommend it
    Students can get license for $40 online or bookstore
  • Don’t need a copy of Windows to run Windows apps
    Darwine is free, CrossOver is not
    CrossOver is much more polished and easy to use than simply WINE
  • Boot Camp: need to play games? Apple supplies drivers, you supply OS
  • Many of these are on helpdesk website
  • Adding printers: SMB for PaperCut

    • 1. BEING A MAC IN A WINDOWS WORLD Have all the capabilities of both operating systems — and get stuff done
    • 2. WHAT YOU’LL EXPERIENCE TODAY • You’ll get a brief history of war • We’ll debunk some myths and misconceptions about Macs and Windows • We’ll discuss ways to conquer the cross-platform barrier • I’ll reveal ways to perform common Windows tasks, but in Mac OS X • You should interject with comments or questions at any time, because I tend to blather too much
    • 3. DON’T BLAME THE CAMPUS: BLAME APPLE • 1980s: Apple was first with Mac OS (’84), Windows came second (’85) • Microsoft pitched to businesses, Apple pitched to... nerds and fans • Oh, and I guess newspapers, creative services, and graphic designers • Businesses prospered with Microsoft’s business-oriented server software and clients • Apple tanked until the iMac (and iPod) came out • Thus, Microsoft had the world, and Apple was trying to win home consumers back
    • 4. THE CIVIL COMPUTER RIGHTS MOVEMENT • Long history of non-interoperability non-in-ter-op-er-a-bil-i-ty: (adjective) 1. when Apple and Microsoft get in a fight, they break things for consumers 2. the degree to which things don’t work together • Tiger, Leopard, and Snow Leopard (OS X 10.4, 10.5, 10.6) bring us closer to harmony, cooperation, integration, world peace • Snow Leopard can log into Active Directory, connect to Windows file shares, even work with Microsoft Exchange right out of the box
    • 5. WHAT MACS CAN DO (THAT YOU MAYBE DIDN’T KNOW THEY COULD DO) • Boot up • Connect to Missouri State’s Wi-Fi • Print to Missouri State’s lab printers • Access Magenta, BEAR1, CISLABS, etc. • Run (some) Windows applications almost natively • Run Windows, Linux
    • 6. WHAT YOU THOUGHT WAS TRUE (DEBUNKING SOME MYTHS AND MISCONCEPTIONS)
    • 7. IF I MAKE THIS ON A MAC, I WON’T BE ABLE TO OPEN IT ON A WINDOWS PC. • If the software is on both Mac and Windows, file formats work peacefully • If the software is Mac-only (GarageBand, iMovie, etc), then the file is Mac-only • Unless, of course, you export to MP3/AAC or QuickTime • Common file formats are the same on both platforms, too • TXT, RTF, JPEG, WAV, MP3, AVI, MOV, etc.
    • 8. MACS & PCS ARE TOTALLY DIFFERENT, THUS I CAN’T NETWORK THEM TOGETHER. • Left over from the ‘AppleTalk days’ where Macs had a different protocol • Macs use the same connection protocols that Windows computers do • Link Macs to Windows printers, share files between Mac/Windows computers • Happy coexistence on home, work, public networks
    • 9. MACS DON’T CRASH, EVER. • Crash a lot less than their Windows-based counterparts, but they still crash • Based on BSD code, a UNIX variant (been around for longer than Windows) • Apple makes the OS and hand-picks the hardware it runs on • Thus, drivers (common source of Windows crashes) are usually developed by Apple • Crashes still happen; all hardware fails at some point • Always back up your data, no matter what computer you’re on
    • 10. MACS ARE FOR PEOPLE THAT DON’T KNOW HOW TO USE COMPUTERS. • They sure can be, but doesn’t mean they’re made specifically for that demographic • Great for the power user: get things done quickly with minimal effort • Great for the über-nerd: UNIX 03 certified, full access to terminal/shell commands • Used by IT professionals, web designers, faculty, students, and kindergartners alike
    • 11. MACS HAVE AN ‘APPLE TAX.’ WHY PAY MORE FOR A COMPUTER? • Apple competes in the mid- to higher-end hardware market; no stripped-down low-cost model is available • Mac mini cost difference is slight, if any • Higher-end Mac Pro cost difference is surprising: usually much less expensive than a Dell with identical specs • All Macs come with full-featured operating system; Microsoft charges way more for their highest-featured OS edition, the ‘ultimate’ • Total cost of ownership also much lower; also usually less extra ‘required’ software to buy
    • 12. MACS CAN’T RIGHT-CLICK.
    • 13. MACS CAN’T RIGHT-CLICK.
    • 14. MACS CAN’T RIGHT-CLICK. • Macs used to have one mouse button • No longer true: desktop Macs come with the Magic Mouse which do left- and right-clicks • Mac laptops have finger gesture right- clicks (two fingers on trackpad & click) • Macs have always had ‘control-click’ contextual menu
    • 15. THERE’S HARDLY ANY SOFTWARE AVAILABLE FOR MACS. • Definitely not true: most common modern applications have Mac versions, or alternatives are available • Microsoft Office, SPSS, Firefox, Adobe Creative Suite, Google Earth... way too many to numerate here • Windows Media Center > Front Row • Microsoft Visio > OmniGraffle

    • 17. RUNNING WINDOWS ON YOUR MAC (HOW TO SETUP YOUR CROSS-PLATFORM COMPUTER)
    • 18. VIRTUALIZATION • Run Mac OS X, another ‘guest’ OS side-by-side • More resource-intensive; requires lots of RAM (about 4GB for painless performance) • VMware Fusion: 800-lbs gorilla of virtualization technologies • Parallels Desktop: newcomer, also loaded with great features • Sun VirtualBox: free, open-source virtualization; great on a tight wallet
    • 19. WINE (WINDOWS EMULATION) • Uses Windows APIs and patchwork to run applications ‘natively’ within OS X • Many popular programs work with WINE • Darwine for OS X is free WINE setup • CrossOver is commercialized WINE, offers support for programs, games
    • 20. BOOT CAMP • Divide the hard drive, install Windows/Linux in its own partition • Full-blown Windows installation; Apple supports this with its own drivers • Easily switch between the two by rebooting • Can’t have them both open at the same time • Compatible with the most software
    • 21. MULTI-OS MEDIATION (OR, HOW MAC & WINDOWS CAN GET ALONG)
