Being a Mac in a Windows World

501

Published on

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.

  • 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

  • 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

  • Being a Mac in a Windows World

    1. 1. BEING A MAC IN A WINDOWS WORLD Have all the capabilities of both operating systems — and get stuff done
    2. 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. 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. 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. 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. 6. WHAT YOU THOUGHT WAS TRUE (DEBUNKING SOME MYTHS AND MISCONCEPTIONS)
    7. 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. 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. 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. 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. 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. 12. MACS CAN’T RIGHT-CLICK.
    13. 13. MACS CAN’T RIGHT-CLICK.
    14. 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. 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
    16. 16. 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. 17. RUNNING WINDOWS ON YOUR MAC (HOW TO SETUP YOUR CROSS-PLATFORM COMPUTER)
    18. 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. 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. 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. 21. MULTI-OS MEDIATION (OR, HOW MAC & WINDOWS CAN GET ALONG)
