Congratulations, Kathyl!!! I hope you'll love your Mac as much as I do
mine. :) Do you have a MacBook or a MacBook Pro? Mine is a MacBook --
almost three years old now.
I don't know what others are using for newsgroup access, but I've used
MT-NewsWatcher <http://www.smfr.org/mtnw/> for *years* and never had it
let me down. It doesn't have the prettiest interface, but it works well.
As for loading EQ6 and your Bernina embroidery stuff, I've heard people
who use either Parallels or Fusion, and both seem to work quite well. I
don't have embroidery, but I do run EQ6, and I use Parallels quite
happily. There will be a few modifications to the keys you use in EQ6,
but that happens in either Parallels or Fusion. I'd recommend that you
join the EQonMacs Yahoo group, and there's also a Mac group for the
Bernina software, though I don't know the name of it.
