Thread: I summon the PC/Mac master race

  1. #1

    I summon the PC/Mac master race

    So my wife's uncle gave me his old iMac for FREE but it's totally wiped. I transferred my PC files over but I was wondering if there was some way I could transfer over programs like the Microsoft Office stuff? I've googled it a bit, saw some tricks like running a Windows OS on your Mac, sounded like a hassle. Anyone here happen to have any ideas? I know you can share disks from the PC, I did that for Manga Studio but I don't have the disks for the office stuff.

    What AptGet says about PowerPC, I think the last operating system it worked on a Mac was Snow Leopard in 2009.

    In terms of Microsoft Office transferring to a Mac, didn't know you could actually do that.

    You can try buying a home/student version on Ebay if you don't want to spend the $139.95, but even if you do, you're investing $139.95 into a 2 year old iMac? That sounds pretty good.

    Yeah, can't complain really. Free is free though.
