Never liked the fact it captures to PDF, unless that can be changed?

Few people have recommended transmit actually, only thing that's keeping me away from it, is the fact it features a price tag, where-as RB/Lite (which I'm now used to) is free :)

I used to have this program called "Hyperstacks" for my Mac. Way better than this newfangled and confusing "HTML" and "PHP".

You can change the default capture to other formats. I don;t remember where you do this but Iwill try and find it for you.

I found a folder action that will convert the PDF screen captures to any other format on the fly. You can see it HERE.

There's nothing wrong with macs, some people are just scared of them.

Macs aren't bad at all. Don't understand why anyone would get that impression.

Possibly. I used to hump XP though, now look at how much I love my mac, and this is my first mac, it's not like I'd even used one (properly) before. (had used OSX previously for about 4 hours total, but only using IE to browse the web)

One thing I here from people is that they are so expensive. Which is really not true. Apple only uses the highest quality hardware in their computers. A similarily spec'd PC will be just as much and will lose it's resale value much quicker. Not to mention that the life of the Mac will be longer.

What else is useful that doesn't come with the OS...
system utilities?
security/spyware/pop-up stopper apps? -- I'm not sure how Macs differ from PCs on these issues
GUI apps?

Security: Just set system update to grab vital patches and alert you when they're ready to install, there's certainly no worry of spyware (No IE integrated into the o/s is a massive help to this), however there are security holes, as I say though, just use sys update and you'll be ok.

Pop-up stopping is built into the default web-browser (Safari) on the menu bar just click 'Safari' then 'Block Pop-Up Windows' to turn it on and off, alternatively hit Comamnd+K (Command is the "Apple key" on the keyboard).

Oh, and I'm sure that you're first impression of Safari will be that it's slow, however it's not, it appears to be slow due to the way in which it gathers data and paints the screen, without going into detail, it's basically an optical illusion and the end result is no slower than FireFox etc.

Not sure what you mean by GUI apps?
