I am about to order an iMac, my first Macintosh. What do you wish someone had told you when you got your first Mac? (mi)

I'm not looking for "install Quicksilver" etc. I'm more interested in higher-level stuff, important patterns that are different on Macs and Windows, but not immediately obvious.
Like this completely made-up example: "the Control Panel equivalent is System Preferences, except for display options, which are always controlled by the Monitors widget. this is because the Mac thinks about settings as belonging to physical objects, etc etc."
