Poll Results: Are You X'd Out? In some ways, the responses to last week's poll asking how much of the time your primary Mac spends booted into Mac OS X were not surprising. Of over 2,700 responses, 47 percent of respondents said they run Mac OS X exclusively and 30 percent never run Mac OS X at all. Clearly TidBITS readers, and particularly those who respond to polls, are notably more likely to have upgraded to Mac OS X than your average Macintosh user. If you add in those who have made the jump to Mac OS X but don't use the new operating system exclusively, 65 percent say they spend more than half their time in Mac OS X, and 35 percent say they spend less than half their time in Mac OS X. To my mind, these numbers help confirm our decision to continue migrating our content toward Mac OS X-specific topics, with a focus on helping those who have either just upgraded or who are considering the upgrade. That said, our mission statement has always been to write about those topics that interest us, and we have wide-ranging interests. [ACE]
File Email with a Key in Apple Mail
In Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger or later, you can use the simple and fun MsgFiler Mail plug-in to file Mail messages using keyboard shortcuts.
New in Apple Mail 4 (the 10.6 Snow Leopard version), to assign a keyboard shortcut to any mailbox on the Move To or Copy To submenu, you can also open the Keyboard pane of System Preferences, click Keyboard Shortcuts, and select Application Shortcuts in the list on the left. Click the + button, choose Mail from the Application pop-up menu, type the name of the mailbox in the Menu Title field, click in the Keyboard Shortcut field, and press the keystroke combination you want to use. Then click Add.
