Mac OS X for Dummies

There are as many people scared of Apple’s next-generation operating system (Mac OS X) as there are excited. These upgrade knee-shakers are right to be nervous, because, for all its familiarities, X takes some getting used to. Navigating the new desktop, networking to non-X Macs, connecting to the Internet, using the Dock, coping with Classic, managing your files – moving to Mac OS X is not going to be quite as easy as Apple would like you to think. However, upgrading to this super-modern, Unix-based operating system will still be one of the best things you do to your Mac, but you’ll need help.
