My struggles with a Mac

For the first time in my life I am away from a PC. I recently got a Mac and I have my struggles going on now... To begin with there were a few usability issues like the trackpad tap not working as a click which were simple preferences tweak. Then came the big one 
1) The Eclipse installation on Mac was not picking the proxy from the Safari settings so I had to set them myself. That can be done by downloading the Pac file from the automatic configuration script URL and then setting the right proxy in the Eclipse Network Connection Preferences section.
2) My Lync for Mac is not working for some reason. This still needs to be figured out. I will update this section once I am able to sort that out. 
3) There is no Propose New Time functionality in the Outlook Calendar. (Sad :()
4) The Outlook Calendar in Mac shows 1 hour slot as big as 2 hours in my Outlook Calendar in Windows which I am used to. This can be changed by going to Organize Menu and playing with the Scale. 

There will be more and I will keep updating this blog post for the small tweaks :).
