Mac OS X, the newest version of the Macintosh operating system to date, has many features derived from UNIX that are quite foreign to those of any previous Mac OS, creating the need for a reliable source to teach users the concepts of this new operating system. This text is a book for graphics and multimedia professionals, web site designers, pre-press users, and other skilled Mac users with specialized technical training, as they are the first to adopt Mac OS X. It goes beyond a basic tutorial, teaching users the underlying technology - in essence, teaching readers how to think like the new OS. Written by a respected Mac authority, John Rizzo, the book offers an incisive overview of the new system. He starts with tips for migrating to and how to use the new OS, and continues with explanations of the new interface, the dramatically different printing and display technologies, networking techniques, configuration and maintenance issues, and Mac OS Server. Throughout the book the author demonstrates how the features work and why they are important to the reader by using analogies and comparisons with traditional Mac operating systems.
