Under OS X, Macs use PC fonts as easily as they use Mac fonts ...
What?? Does that pertain to PS fonts? (I have heard in the past that Macs could use PC TT fonts, but not PS.)

That would be a good thing to know.

I did find this snippet about SCSI on Macs:

"Adaptec SCSI cards should not be used as Adaptec has discontinued development of drivers for Mac OS X."

I have to do a LOT more research. One reason I'm considering a Mac is because I'd like to know what all the fuss is about. I only worked on Macs occasionally (freelancing at typesetting or printing companies) and really didn't see much difference (other than the different ways of finding files, loading fonts, etc.), but that was years ago.
