For many users, it's not working with a new operating system that's intimidating, it's all that needs to be done before, during, and after the upgrade that has them running scared. That's why best-selling author Tom Negrino has devoted an entire guide to just that topic. Rather than cover every last feature and function of Apple's newest OS, Tom focuses on just the need-to-know essentials that will ensure a smooth transition to Mac OS X Tiger.

In short order, readers will learn how to prepare for the upgrade, how to back up their data, what's entailed in the actual upgrade, and how to reinstall software. Once Tiger is safely installed, Tom provides a quick overview of what's changed before showing readers how to customize their systems and use three of Tiger's key features: Spotlight search, Automator (for streamlining repetitive tasks), and Dashboard (the control panel for Tiger's nifty new widget mini-apps). And for readers who want to know more about what's new in this system upgrade, the book provides a handy overview of the top ten new additions to Mac OS X Tiger.
