OSX does not natively support Themes. Get click-to-flash for safari to block flash because it does not run very well. For IMs Adium is the best I have used. Trying to think of my most used apps but can't off the top of my head cause I am at work on a XP machine.
And Welcome to the Mac world. I hope you enjoy it as much as many of us have.

I'm tired of windows all kind of spam, spyware and viruses even when using a firewall. I'm trying to sell my pc and 24" monitor for a iMac 27" i7

I like both, they both have their ups and downs. Windows 7 has been MS best OS.

I recently bought a 2010 Macbook Pro 13" and have always used windows OS for many years. I must admit I love the Apple range and am just learning to use it.
I have the following and would never go back:
Macbook Pro 13" 10.6.4 OS (I did have a 17" Dell Inspiron laptop 250gb hdd with Windows Vista)
iPhone 4 32gb
iPhone 3gs 16gb
iPad 64gb wifi & 3g
iPod touch 16gb
What makes Apple so appealing? I dont use the laptop for anything technical, so it may never get to be tested to its fullest, but it does the wife an I.

My first Mac was a iBook G4. I got it because I was curious about macs. After that point I loved it. Not sure what it is about it but I enjoy them. After that I bought a Macbook then just this year finally went and got a 27in iMac.
Nothing against Windows. I think 7 is great, great OS jump for them. My GF is starting to like OSX also.

I just bought my first Mac today. It's just a plain MacBook, but SUCH an upgrade from my 7 year-old Windows Xp machine. Going from a Pentium 4 to Core 2 Duo is amazing, best investment I've ever made
Twitter It Up!!

Not only the hardware jump but you are jumping to a great OS. Nothing wrong with XP or Windows 7 (which is a great jump for Microsoft) but OSX just has that wonderful feel to it.

The only regret I have with buying my mac was not getting the one with the combodrive.
