Wouldn't it be cool to add "Mac guru" to your resume? This Don Jones video takes you deep into the OSX and shows you how to use your existing Windows skills to operate a Mac. It's perfect training for Windows "Power Users" who find themselves using or supporting Mac computers in a business environment or at home.

By the time you're done watching you'll be monitoring and maintaining Macs, performing most basic desktop support tasks (such as configuring, networking, managing files and folders, and configuring security), and operating and configuring advanced features (such as Time Machine, wireless networking, and MobileMe).
