Editorial Review

Mac OS X combines the power of Unix with the simplicity and elegance of Macintosh. Built on the framework of the first version, 10.1 makes Mac OS X faster and more responsive. Get new features and refinements as well. In Mac OS X version 10.1, Apple delivers vastly improved performance at every level of the system. Menus are visibly faster to react, drawing quickly and smoothly. Most applications will launch two to three times faster in Mac OS X version 10.1.

Finder windows are more responsive when they are resized, regardless of whether the user is manipulating files in icon, list, or column view. To get windows out of the way in a hurry, choose a scale option instead of the genie effect. Available in dock preferences, scale cuts down the time it takes to minimize an active window to the dock. OpenGL is 20 percent faster in this release, with full native support for the NVIDIA GeForce 3 card, allowing applications to take maximum advantage of advanced 3-D applications.

In version 10.1, Apple's next-generation operating system is ready to power a digital lifestyle. Apple added CD burning to iTunes in this Mac OS X software update. With Mac OS X version 10.1 users are able to create their own data CDs using the CD-burning capabilities built right into the finder. For users who burn a lot of CDs, a burn button can be added to the finder toolbar. The new DVD player application is the best way to watch movies at 30,000 feet. Choose to watch them in a window or full screen. The sleek new controller allows easy navigation of DVDs, with controls that can be arranged vertically or horizontally. The new iDVD 2, available only for Mac OS X version 10.1, advances the tools needed to author and record personal DVD-Video discs. The enhanced MPEG encoder in iDVD 2 and the Mac OS X architecture work together to provide background encoding and to accelerate the DVD recording process.

Mac OS X version 10.1 also features enhanced AppleScript support throughout the system. Not only is the finder far more scriptable but so are many of the system components like Print Center, Internet Connect, and Terminal. AppleScript also uses the Internet-standard SOAP and XML protocols to enable communication across a network so it can send AppleScript events from one Mac OS X system to another. Add toolbar scripts to finder windows. With AppleScript Studio, create full-fledged Mac OS X applications complete with a user interface. These applications can script regular Mac applications as well as the Unix shell. Other new features include more compatible networking, better Internet browsing, more than 200 PostScript printer description files, faster file finding, and more control over system preferences.
