So far I’ve found a replacement for Semagic and Trillian. One quacks like a duck, the other seems to be fairly decent.

I’m still stuck on the whole music server thing. I will probably be keeping a PC in the background for my Windows work, and I could technically keep serving up music that way, but I’ve found that iTunes doesn’t like to play music from the server very well. It usually plays one track from a playlist and stops.

Really, the problem wouldn’t be such a big deal if I was the only one listening to my music, but I share it with my wife and a few other select people on campus and I don’t want to take away that service to them. Also, on occasion, I do actually server up music at home. It saves me from having to carry my mp3 player everywhere, I can leave it up here and only take it home when I need it. guess all I really need to do is figure out how to share out my music and I’m good to go.

So, I my computer is overloaded with goofy extra applications and skins. It doesn’t seem to matter how clean of a build I put on it, it’s always lagging in some situation or another.

At the same time, I have this dual processor G5 sitting next to me on the other side and I must admit, on occasion, I wonder why I even have a pc. I could probably just move the mac over into the PC’s old home, drop everything and just be a Mac guy. There are some things, however, that I think are holding me back, most of which are the free programs I use nearly every day. I guess if I found Mac equivalents for them, I wouldn’t have any reason not to switch anymore.

As far as I can tell, the things that are holding me back are Trillian, Semagic (or a decent LiveJournal Client at least), Audiogen (my streaming music server), Notmad (my Nomad sync software), and I know it sounds stupid, but I like having a highly skinable MP3 player. Windows Media Player has some slick skins and I always love having a good looking skin sitting on my desktop.

Pretty much everything else is the same, mac or PC, but some of these above listed applications are make or break. They are the last straws holding me back from swapping over to a Mac at work.
