A bit off topic, but I know there are a lot of smart Mac evangelists on the list so I thought I'd pose the question here. I made the switch to OS X after Apple moved to the x86 platform. Now that VMWare can be ported to OS X, it's a practical platform for me. I'm an ex *nix admin, so I 'get the drift'; however, I'm looking for a good guide to OSX to help the transition. Not so much a 'dummies' guide on how to organize the family photos, but something outlining idiomatic usage for productivity-intensive use such as software development. Any tips? Thanks

Rui Carmo's HOWTO Switch to the Mac is pretty good. It is not focused on programming, but I find it very useful. http://the.taoofmac.com/space/HOWTO/Switch%20To%20The%20Mac Congratulations on your switch.

O'Reilly has some really really good titles for you. Mac OS X Tiger for Unix Geeks, for example, is a great read. Running Mac OS X Tiger is good, but not as advanced. And of course, the Tiger Nutshell book by them is a great reference, like most of the nutshell books. -ray
