Underneath the colorful interface of Mac OS X is a powerful, complicated operating system based on BSD Unix. And, Mac users of all kinds continue to need help both in figuring out how to run OS X and understanding how the underlying OS works.
The new version of OS X, code-named Panther, that adds performance and interface enhancements, and that further extends the capabilities of the underlying Unix-based subsystem.
The third of Mac OS X Unleashed takes the same approach as the best selling first and second editions. The book is known for helping the reader deal with the most trouble-prone aspects of the user interface, but also focusing to a great extent on the BSD environment and how the user and administrator can get the most out of the operating system.
