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.
Every month, Macworld publishes how-to articles and plentry of tips to make the passage to Mac OS X as easy as possible. For an immediate jump-start, invest in Mac OS X for Dummies, which has over 300 pages of tips, walkthroughs and explanations. As with all For Dummies books, it’s aimed at all starters who want to learn quickly and easily.
