Similar Software between MAC and Windows
  

Hi,
If a user switches from Windows to MAC than what are the most similar software available in MAC OX. That means if I use Microsoft Office in Windows then in MAC does there is a similar program available to work on spread sheets, word documents, presentation, etc. Or else I can use Microsoft Office in it. In the same way what is available for Internet, multimedia, etc. Thanks in advance.

Re: Similar Software between MAC and Windows

Yes there are multiple tools which are similar to Windows application. Many software's supports cross platforms. That means they work both on MAC or Windows. Like Firefox and other browser. If you are looking for internet solution then the available options for MAC are Internet Explorer, FireFox, Opera, Safari, FireFox, Opera, Camino, Shiira and OmniWeb. For a email clients you have Thunderbird & Entourage. For messaging service you can use Skype, aMSN and Adium.
