With the release of OS-X (System 10) for the Macintosh workstation, Apple Computer has taken a dramatic leap forward to the world of preemptive multitasking, built-in support for a wide range of multimedia objects, and an underlying UNIX platform. Mac Os X offers the reader an in-depth look at the core kernel of the new OS - Aqua. With unparalleled support for Internet connections, digital video, audio, QuickTime, and other rich media technologies, Mac Os X is also capable of handling older software in Classic mode. Mac Os X provides insight into every aspect of this powerful new computing platform from Apple - and is sure to please even the most diehard Macintosh user.
