Mac OS X

Editorial Review

Mac OS X is Apple's new operating system for Macintosh computers. With dozens of new features and a redesigned, user-friendly interface, OS X unleashes the full potential of your Macintosh. The new Aqua user interface is simple and elegant, making computing even easier for new users. Aqua simplifies an array of common computing tasks with new time- and work-saving organizational features such as the Dock and a redesigned Finder.

The heart of Mac OS X is Darwin, the Linux-like core operating system of OSX. It's an industrial-strength modern operating system engineered for rock-solid stability. Darwin offers greatly improved performance through such advanced features as protected memory, preemptive multitasking, advanced virtual memory, symmetric multiprocessing, modern networking, and Unix application support.

Mac OS X combines three state-of-the-art graphics technologies to give you sharp, clear, dynamic graphics: Apple's new Quartz 2-D graphics engine (based on the Internet-standard Portable Document Format), OpenGL for sizzling 3-D graphics and intense gaming, and QuickTime to play streaming movies, sound, pictures, and other media in over 30 different formats.

Mac OS X takes full advantage of the Internet, so getting online is faster and easier than ever. Mac OS X is ready to plug into any Internet standards-based network. It simplifies Web surfing and Internet communications with several Internet-based applications, including Mail, Microsoft Internet Explorer for Mac OS X, Sherlock, Keychain, Address Book, and PPP Connect.

To ease your transition to this new platform and to protect your investment in existing Mac programs, Mac OS X includes several technologies that enable you to run the Mac OS 9 applications you use today. Also included, of course, is the next generation of modern applications optimized to benefit from the advanced features of Mac OS X.
