“1. To move files instead of copying, hold down command while dragging.
2. You can move files from one machine to another very easily between two Macs or between two PCs. It's just harder with one of each.

4. TextEdit does have the ability to change fonts. You just weren't looking hard enough. Hit Command-T or choose Format > Font > Show Fonts from the Format pull-down at the top of your screen.

6. For FLV and MLV files, download VLC. It's cross-platform, and is by far the most consistently reliable way to play movies on any OS, WIndows included.
7. If you really need to run that particular thesaurus, there's a great free open source tool called Wine that lets you run about 80% of Windows apps from within Mac OS X.

With this particular flu strain, deaths seem to be concentrated in people with healthy immune systems, not those with weak immune systems, leading to suspicion that the cause of death may be due to cytokine storm. If that theory proves true, then people with stronger immune systems are actually in worse shape than those with weakened immune systems.”
