I just got an iMac, and I'm pretty excited to have such a relatively cheap, fast, and powerful computer. However, it's become very apparent to me within just a few hours of use that Macs are entirely different from windows. Aside from the small problems, like setting desktop icons, I need help with finding a torrent client. I tried dev.deluge-torrent.org/wiki/Installing/MacOSX and the instructions there absolutely baffled me. If you guys could recommend me an easier install/maybe provide some general rules of thumb about how macs differ from windows, that'd be awesome.
I always thought uTorrent was like the worst client, or so I was told. Anyway, what VPN do you recommend? Preferably a free one that won't pester me to upgrade.
That and a screen recorder would solve 90% of my problems
There's loads of torrent clients just get the one you want. Don't use a VPN so can't help you there (though VPN stuff is built in and in network settings), but QuickTime has a screen recorder.
A nice tip - cmd + space brings up the finder search so just type what you want and press enter, it makes doing anything so much quicker. Also pressin space on any file brings up a preview.
Ah yes I just figured out the quicktime recorder, a helpful little tool. I need that shit for omega haha
I only have uTorrent on my mac, I'll have to look into settings. I just don't want any legal action, I've never torrented without a proxy or VPN so I'm nervous.
Yeah macs are so different from what I'm used to. It took me forever to realize that all programs are essentially applications and in their own folder on macs
Yeah if you right click any application and choose 'show package contents' it will have all the files like it would in windows.
Looking at your OP what did you mean by setting desktop icons?
The only reason mac pros are so small is because it is similar to a laptop zip tied to the back of a monitor. They use Intel S series processors that are like regular desktop processors but have a far lower TDP, and that gimps the hell out of the performance.
