With my recent computer problems (not major problems mind you).....and my Jonesing for a new computer for the last few months, I ended up buying a Macbook Pro the other day and gave the Windows laptop to my brother. I really like the Macbook so far. I have a few questions though.... Should I be running something like Zonealarm?.....or is the Firewall in Mac OS-X good enough? Should I get some kind of Anti-Virus software? Is it needed at all? Is there a good Usenet newsgroup reader available for Mac? I used Outlook Express on my old machine. I'd really like to stay away from web based, like Google Groups. That's about it.... Thanks, DW Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
