Join Mike Meyers for an in-depth discussion in this video Touring OS X, part of CompTIA A+ (220-902) Cert Prep: 1 Introduction to Computers.
- Probably one of the coolest parts about the new…A+ 901 902, is the inclusion of Apple Macintosh 0S X.…Now, for us old geezers, a long time ago,…we used to have Apple Macintosh as part of the A+.…They dumped it a long, long time ago, but now it's back.…Now, I don't wanna make you Windows people panic.…For those of you who are not Mac people,…I'm not a Mac person myself, I own a Mac,…but that doesn't mean that I have that…super high level of expertise.…
The amount of information the A+ is going to…challenge you on, is very, very small.…So don't panic, so what we're gonna do here…is we're just gonna do a quick overview,…a quickest, lightest touch of OS X…that you can possibly imagine.…In fact, if you're a good Mac user,…if I don't make you crabby at least twice…in this episode, I'm making a mistake.…Now, what I have in front of me right here…is a Mac Mini, so Mac computers come in a number…of different versions, iMac, Mac Mini,…Mac Air, there's a lot of different ones out there,…but they pretty much all run OS X.…
In this introductory course, Mike Meyers explains the basics of how a computer works and the operational procedures that are key to any well-running IT team, including soft skills such as professionalism, communication, and safety. In Chapter 2, Mike tours the four most recent versions of Windows, as well as the OS X and Ubuntu Linux operating systems. He shows how to navigate to essential tools in each OS and explains how to manage virtual memory (RAM).
