As of January 2002, all new Macintoshes ship with Mac OS X 10.1 as the new default operating system-and that's a good thing. Mac OS X 10.1 is built on Unix, so it gives Mac users the power, stability, and security of that modern operating system. But thanks to Aqua, the name of OS X's gorgeous new interface, Mac users have a brand-new world to explore. A new Finder and floating Dock are designed to help you navigate and organize your system and give you instant access to your most frequently used applications, folders, and minimized windows. In addition, Aqua brightens up your desktop with its expressive icons and vibrant color. Mac OS X 10.1: Visual QuickStart Guide provides step-by-step instructions for learning the latest version of OS X, taking an intuitive, task-based, visual approach. Beginners, and professionals moving up to this new version of the operating system, can quickly learn to use the features and capabilities of this new operating system. Detailed explanations of how to install, set up, configure, and use the OS are covered, along with task-based lessons on how to use many of the built-in applications that Apple ships with OS X 10.1.
