MacBook Pro Status Report

I've been using my new MacBook Pro at work for over a month, in a strongly Windows-centric workplace, and so far things have gone very well.

This works even better on my new Mac than it did on my old laptop, because I have a better X11 server for Mac OS X and because I can use all the standard UNIXish utilities to transfer and process files on the two platforms.
