    Hey folks. Hoping to get some solid advice from the great community here!

    Full disclosure, I'm a longtime Mac user (no booing please!) lol, but I've also been a fan of Windows for a long time. I still remember rocking Windows 3.1 back in the day, and for me Windows 95 was magic.

    Long story short, I've always used Microsoft/Windows products through the years, and the other day picked up a new Dell XPS 13. Was wondering if anyone out there could lend a hand in terms of getting me setup. The big thing on my side is making sure my key apps and services are in place. I generally use:

    - Skype
    - Slack
    - FTP of some sort (as long as it's solid)
    - Photoshop
    - Gmail
    - Some solid text editor (for coding - I use Coda on Mac)
    - Trello

    Any feedback is appreciated. Looking forward to making Windows a more regular part of my day. And you'll see a lot more of me in here :)

    Thanks in advance for all your help!

    Boooooooo!

    *ahem* with that out of the way...

    My first tip is to not let yourself get caught flat-footed by a forced restart. I don't know how much control the XPS 13 gives you over Windows' update schedule, but don't become of one "those people" that ignores the restart to update message until it's too late.

    Next, spend a month or two with Cortana. You might really grow to like her.

    And finally, read Windows Central religiously. I hear they have some great tips and articles about Windows 10 on there.
