Mac OS X has been rewritten from the ground up, and Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard New Features highlights all of the most important and user-relevant aspects of this release. Experienced instructor and lifelong Mac user Garrick Chow introduces current Mac users to the improvements in the latest OS. While not a complete overhaul of the operating system, this update does address a fair number of internal systems and external user features. Garrick explores all of these updates, including enhancements to the Finder and the Dock and a completely revamped QuickTime player. He shows the wealth of improvements to built-in applications like Safari, Preview, iChat, and Mail, and explains the updated 64-bit support within Snow Leopard.
Throughout these movies, I will occasionally be using the exercise files, which are available if you are a premium subscriber to the lynda.com Online Training Library, or if you are watching this course on disc. If you have access to the exercise files, just copy the folder to your Desktop where we will be using them sporadically throughout the videos. But for the most part the exercise files are just there so I have some files to work with as I show you around the operating system and applications, and there is nothing specific about any of the files that make some of the requirement to have before you can watch these movies. If you want to work along with me, but don't have access to the exercise files, just create a folder on your Desktop and throw in a couple of PDF files, some images, and a QuickTime Movie or two into that folder.
But most of the stuff I will be taking you through you will be able to do with what's already on your Mac. So don't worry about using the exercise files if you don't have them.
