I May Have to Buy a MAC

This former MAC bigot switched to Windows machines many years ago: I have been surrounded by Windows machines at work for years and the schools where my kids attended and my wife works long ago ditched their Apple IIs and MACs.

Something like this may lead me back to a MAC. The price is right! I can't count the times I have started to catalog my library and never finished. It keeps growing and I get no closer.

Does anyone know of a similar (function and price) program for a Windows XP machine?

Oh, now that's a cool little app. I like the idea that you can use a barcode scanner for it, too. To be fair, I would think that there has to be a Windows app out there that does the same thing.

Still, the last computer that I bought for my home use was a Win box. At work, I use both, but last year upgraded an older blue and white G3 for a dual processor G4 running OS X. I couldn't be happier. It's a great OS, the applications are wonderful. My next home computer purchase will be a new Mac box--and apps like that one only make the decision easier.

Thanks for pointing it out.

Come back over from the Dark Side and all will be forgiven. Once you get a hefty helping of OS X, Windows feels like slumming.

That's pretty awesome... but on the face of it it doesn't seem to allow for the kind of serious bibliographic information I'd want to include. I guess it's probably customizable.

You might want to look at Readerware for Windows.

Thanks for the suggestion. I've downloaded the demo and will test it out over the next few weeks.
