That was easy

I just switched from an old Powerbook to a new Powerbook. When you boot up a new Mac, it asks you if you're moving from an old Mac. If so, you plug a Firewire cable in, which you borrow from your co-worker, and it just copies everything over. Your files, apps, and accounts. Two hours later, you log into your new Mac, and everything's the same. And it works! Bravo.

Of course, sometimes, one of the benefits of switching to a new computer is being able to start from scratch and clean up your act. But, that's easier than reinstalling (and potentially losing) things.

Well done.
