    No its not that different from windows , some things are a little different but heh.

    You can right click with a mouse , but most of the time there is no need

    Ive had my macbook for 18 months now , no viruses

    Torrents are available

    You can use Cyberduck (free, http://cyberduck.ch/), Fugu (free, http://rsug.itd.umich.edu/software/fugu/download.html), Transmit (30$, http://www.panic.com/transmit/) to SFTP into the iPhone instead of WinSCP on the Mac.

    To SSH via commad line use Terminal, the app comes with the OS-DVD.

    BTW: Maybe I dont get the question, but a new Mac always comes with Mac-OS X full version.

    hope this helps
