10.2 of Mac OS X in the fall of 2002 (Jaguar), the new operating system was finally stable enough for
mass distribution on all shipping Macintosh computers. Yet underneath the new colorful interface was a
powerful, complicated operating system based on BSD Unix. And Mac users of all kinds needed help
both in figuring out how to run OS X and in understand how OS X worked underneath the covers and how
to get the most out of it. In late summer 2003 Apple is expected to release a new version of OS X—code-
named "Panther"—that will add some performance and interface enhancements, and that will further
extend the capabilities of the underlying Unix-based subsystem. The third edition of Sams Teach Yourself
