This episode is being recorded on eight April, April 3rd. Is that right? 2028 or is it still March? I feel like it’s still March. Rob: [00:00:19] Kevin. That was smooth, man. You should do this for a living. Kevin: [00:00:24] And I am joined today by, smart ass, Rob Conery and, and Jon Galloway. Jon: [00:00:30] Hello. Kevin: [00:00:31] Okay. And we are here today to talk about, transitioning between Mac and Windows. Jon recently made a, a life change and, is doing more work on the Mac side and Rob has, recently transitioned over, do more Windows stuff.
