With the release of the Leopard operating system for Macs, Apple has added or updated more than 300 features. In Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard Essential Training, Macworld senior editor Christopher Breen explores each of Leopard's vital features. He walks viewers through the installation, then goes over how to use the interface and navigational elements, work with the Dock's stacking feature, and take advantage of the iLife applications, Safari, and Mail. These tutorials are designed for people who are new to the Mac or who are upgrading to the Leopard operating system.
Hi it's Chris Breen from MacWorld and welcome to my Mac OS X.5 Leopard Essential Training title, and I underscore and emphasize Essential because this is for those of you who are new to the Mac, or you're new to computers. Maybe you've been using Windows for little while and you're coming on over to the Mac side, this is a great way to get started. We're going to start with the basics and we're going to move our way all the way through Leopard, so that by the end of all your viewing, you're going to have a very good handle on all that is Leopard.
For those of you who are little more advanced, I would suggest skip around the title. You can skip the first couple of chapters because you know how to operate your mouse and keyboard and drag things around and copy and paste things. But as you go through, you're going to want to look at highlights of the new applications - things like Time Machine, Spaces and Stacks and look at the new capabilities of applications such as Mail and iChat. And if you just like a general overview of what's new in Leopard please take a look at my other title on lynda.com, which is Mac OS X.5 Leopard New Features. There we hit the highlights of Time Machine, Spaces, Stacks, Mail, iChat, Sharing PhotoBooth. All the things that you're interested in, in regard to the new version of Mac OS X.
Note that there are no Exercise Files with this title, so please feel free to sit down at your Mac and follow along with your mouse and get ready for Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard.
