Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger Tutorial

Mac OS X 10.4 “Tiger” is the latest update to the Unix-based operating system for Macintosh. It builds on previous versions of Mac OS X to provide an even more powerful and easy-to-use experience. New technologies such as Spotlight and Dashboard integrate your information and the Internet to make you even more productive. System-wide improvements let Mac OS X anticipate your needs, with issues such as printer configuration handled with even less user intervention than ever before. The advent of powerful Spotlight searching and Smart Folders means that you no longer have to worry about where you saved something—everything is locatable based on whatever criteria or content matter to you. author Jesse Feiler is your guide through this latest installment of the Apple Mac OS. To begin learning today, simply click on one of the OS X Tiger lessons.
