Apple's OS X Leopard is one powerful cat. The latest Mac operating system is faster, more user-friendly and more feature-rich than any of its predecessors. Building on the success of previous versions, this UNIX-based program is one of the most stable consumer operating systems ever designed - and one of the most enjoyable to use. With Mac OS X Leopard in easy steps, you'll be able to unleash this powerful operating system and have it up and running in no time. In clear, accessible language, the book introduces you to the OS X environment and teaches about the user interface. With these basics mastered, this full-color, fully illustrated guide opens the gateway to the foundations of Leopard: the Dock and the Finder. The book also covers new innovative features such as the invaluable backup program, Time Machine, the organizational tool, Spaces, and the new file-viewing device, Covers. For everyone involved in a digital lifestyle, Mac OS X Leopard in easy steps covers all of the bases; from iPhoto for organizing and editing photos, to iWeb for publishing Web pages, to a .Mac account for all of your online needs. With the growing popularity of Mac computers the time has never been better to introduce the power of OS X Leopard into your computing life and this book will ensure that you soon have it purring like a kitten.
