Smile Newbie Saying Hi!

I work in IT Support at the Head Office of a Retail company in the UK where (for whatever reason) we are an IBM/Lenovo house with around 30 servers and around 300 desktop/laptop computers. I've been in IT Support for around 12 years and have used everything from DOS and Windows 3.11 to XP and Vista - just about to get Windows 7 at work so that shall be fun!

Despite being dead against Apple Mac's (I always used to refer to them as toys - in fact on a recent purchase that was made at work I put 'Fisher Price' logos all on the box and on the Mac itself) - I am now actually a MacBook owner and now understand why when I used to take the micky out of Mac owners they didn't bite and just grinned at me!

I've been looking for a friendly forum that has both PC and Mac sections and after having a quick look around it looks like I found one!
