I did not realize there was so much open source software for Mac nor that there were so many programs that came with a Mac.
That's one of the common misconceptions regarding Macs, no software. I think I'm a pretty typical computer user, and I've been able to find a Mac program for everything I've wanted to do. Some, I've had to buy, while others have been open source / freeware. Just wait until you want to remove a program from your Mac. Unlike Windows, there's no Add / Remove program routine to go through that invariably asks if you want to delete some obscure file that "might" be needed by some other program. Want to delete a program? Simply drag its icon from your Applications folder to the trash. Gone! There might be a prefs file in Library > Preferences that you can also drag to the trash. That's it. All traces of the program are gone. Some programs have an uninstall routine, but it's pretty rare. For example, if you don't like Safari (Apple's browser), drag the icon to the trash to remove it. Try that with Internet Explorer on your XP system.If you're curious what might be coming from Apple, watch Steve Jobs' keynote address from WWDC 06. You can watch it here

Golf is a relatively simple game, played by reasonably intelligent people, stupidly.
