From the introduction: "Some of you may be rolling your eyes right now; all computers usethe file and folder concept and some sort of colorful userinterface, so there couldn’t be that much difference betweenMac OS X and its competitors, right? Wrong. I don’t just saythis because of some blind devotion to all things Apple; I’veactually used different flavors of Windows and Linux for more than13 years, right alongside my trusty Mac, so experience has been myteacher. If I have any devotion to Apple, there are plenty of goodreasons why, the subject of this book being the first. Readers ofthis book who are already Mac users understand exactly whatI’m talking about. For those of you moving from othercomputing platforms, it’s my desire that by the end of thisbook you will have a whole new perspective on computing and seewhat it means to really have fun while working with your computer.In Mac OS X Leopard Portable Genius you can learn not just thebasics, but the subtle nuances and little tips and tricks that makeusing your Mac that much easier.

I hope this book will do justice to Mac OS XLeopard, which isn’t just a computer operating system;it’s an art form."
