    Sorry, but I just don't follow what is on the JJP site. None of my screens look the same. It looks like that is for Windows. What am I doing wrong?

    Found it on the big thread announcing 1.25. Very easy!

    Just drag and drop it in a reformatted USB drive.

    . . . and everyone says Macs are easier.

    It is easy. Drag and drop, unzips automatically.

    Hence all the treads "how do you ... on a Mac?"

    Way easier for most things

    Easy enough - thanks bud.

    And for the PC lovers. I converted over a few years ago, reluctantly, and have never looked back. Mac's are smooth for beginners and intermediates. You want super gaming and coding machines - PC. Coverted whole house to Mac three years ago - best move I ever made.

    its a lot easier on the mac, so easy that the steps shown are irrelevant to mac users and is what is so confusing

    drag and drop..bam.

    I will respectfully disagree with you.
    You paid twice the amount for a machine with the same Intel motherboard and the same Intel processor as a PC.
    You would have been better off buying a generic case and power supply and running Ubuntu on it free.
    Apple is like Old Navy.
    They could put dog doo doo on a platter on a plate and put it in their ads and people go running to the store to buy it and they have no idea why. Lemmings!
    Same goes for the iPhone. Don't tell me they are easier. That's bs. No memory card slots, no replaceable battery. And people should be laughing at the new OS 7. It looks like the programmers hired the Easter Bunny to work for Fisher Price on a my first Sony.
    But that's ok you Mac people. You keep buying them up. Microsoft (part owner of Apple) and Intel are laughing all the way to the bank.
    The rest of us PC people will just right click and chose extract here.

    I remember one of my friends trying to sell me on a Mac a few years ago. He was claiming it was so much easier. "Look...it only has one mouse button" was one of his early statements. I asked how you cut and paste and he went on to say (paraphrasing of course) you had to hold down the L2 key and also the P7 key and then click the single mouse button. "That's not easier." I said.

    I'm sure they are good for basic internet browsing and graphic design work, or possibly to suit a particular use or taste, but everything else seems to be PC.

    I forgot about the stupid 1 button mouse.
    Ya that makes it so much easier doesn't it? Lol

    Lol way to quote almost every 10+ year old apple stereotype possible in one thread guys!

    Macs haven't had those buttons since 2000. Lol.

    In general settings you can choose to tap the right bottom corner of the mouse and it's the same as right click on a PC.

    Over stereotyping my friend. Open a Coca Cola, take a deep breathe, sip and there it is smile. Now if you don't like Coca Cola because your local Shop N Go has the same thing in a no brand can - have at it. All same sugars, syrup and flavorings. Bet those sugar companies are laughing to the bank every time I drink a Coke too.

    Seriously, all need to relax on the PC vs Mac wars. I'm not a MAC lemming and resisted for years, touting the PC (guess you missed that). Blue screen of death, viruses, etc. started to get old. But I loved the versatility of what I could build and add on with a PC. However, being a computer tech for my family and extended family on my days off - screw that. Enter a friend touting Mac. I made fun of him for years. Then after I "listened" after my frustration with Windows update gone bad - I converted and bought my bud dinner. Results may vary but very happy with the switch. And yes Linux may solve for Windows problems. And if grandma had balls she'd be grandpa. If you take the time to invest in Linux or a PC you can literally do anything. I don't have that time. And the people in my family/extended family are not very techy. They use technology not create technology.

    I still love what PCs have to offer. But Mac, while more expensive granted, simplified so much for an every day user and graphic intense artists. Hate all you want, they did. The user experience on most Apple products (enter iPhone here) changed the market. I live in the wireless space professionally - whether you want to believe it or not Apple changed the paradigm. Now does iOS 7 look tacky - totally agree on the Easter Bunny comment. I'm not a fan of the upgrade and I do not buy all Apple products. But like anything, every product has a market segment. You are not it - cool. I am. Happy for me.
