as a still novice mac-user, I was psyched about the prospect of mac migration assistant auto-magically copying all my files, apps, and settings from my imac to the new macbook. I blithely set it up, and accepted the its estimated “22 hours” to complete the migration. Well over 24 hours later, I woke up to find the message hanging “less than a minute remaining.”
end result? migration assistant did not work. I unplugged, restarted the macbook, and loaded all the apps and files manually. oh well.
Then spent the morning trying to remember how to configure apache, php, etc.
loving the back-lit keyboard.
