You should plan to spend some time with BaseCamp. It is not a follow-on to MapSource so don't go into it thinking it should just work the same way. The workflow is much more intuitive once you've learned the basics of the application. There are big changes coming to BC on both OS's in v4.2. Oh, and I personally prefer the Mac version of BC over Windows.
