Finally got my wife away from Windows everywhere but work, and barely using MacOS.

Just have to show her that fspot can work well with our photos, and she'll be hooked!

I'll be happy once that day comes!

What right do you have to tell her what software she can and can't use?

What makes you think he's telling her what to do? He stated that he is "showing" her, not forcing or telling her what to do.

It's pretty good but I get frustrated on certain things and I miss my wobbly windows and terminal when I'm using it

+1, I can never turn off wobbly windows. I makes everything more natural. Windows without wobbly windows reminds me that it's still the same unlovable brick.
