Mac OS X "The Unofficial Apple Weblog has posted a short story on the top five mistakes made by new Mac users. It includes closing an application window and thinking it has quit, downloading software and then running it from the disk image (runs slowly, can't eject disk image), and Windows .exe files littered around the desktop after they've tried to download software and install it. The comments attached to the article are entertaining, and pick up many other common mistakes. Here's a precise list of things that TUAW and its users said in comments, and a few of my own."

Is it me?

Is it me? Or does the title say 30, and then links to 5?

That said, just when you think people can't be any more stupid, they usually are.

Trying to explain some things like Icons and shortcuts is enough to through some people.

Heck, don't even need to have the computer turned to through people.

"My screen says 'No signal' "
"Is your computer turned on?"
"Ahhh, nevermind"

It happens too.
