    This question will let you know how NEW I am at this:eek: . Once I've installed my XP do I have to go to windows and update with patches etc. I will not be going on line using the Windows OS, well maybe for 10 min a week.

    Thanks

    Yes, you will have quite a few updates to install at first.

    Then you'll have some to deal with on a regular basis.

    If you are using virus checking software in Win, that will want updated even more frequently.

    It's actually quite a pain compared to OS X: Seems like every time I use Win I need to wait for some update or other to complete before I can do anything (this is using WinXp about once a week on average).

    That said, my most recent updates were Office, iTunes and Quicktime in OS X within the last hour ;)

    Thanks Phil, I was afraid of that. The constant upodating and problems with some of the updates was the main reason I switched to iMac ... Oh Well.
