Hi there. I've been using Windows since Windows ME (although I never really used Vista, jumped from XP to 7) so I am new to Mac OS. A relative from the US visited us last October as well as early this year and gave us an old black Macbook. Mom got a HP laptop from them back in October last year which I've been using since my desktop burned, so all my files are now in my Mom's laptop. Now that there's a Macbook, I need to move my stuff there so Mom and my siblings can use her laptop freely. I've been putting off moving my files because I'm not used to Mac OS. T_T Now when I received the Macbook, it was still running in Tiger. After some research, I've found out that it's a 2007 one.I've since upgraded it to Snow Leopard. I can't upgrade it to Lion because I'd need to get more RAM and HD first, as well as a new battery and charger since the old ones aren't holding its charges well. Now that I have a clean install, there aren't any software in there yet apart from whatever came with the clean install on Snow Leopard. >.< I probably need programs that I use frequently in Windows like MS Office (word, excel, ppt), Photoshop, FTP program and Skype among other programs. Since these stuff will probably cost me funds I do not have at the moment, do you guys know of any free alternatives that you can recommend that works on Mac? The interface as well as the inner workings of Mac OS still confuse me, so if you have any good tips/tricks/advice to a person new to Mac, I'm all ears.
