This is an attempt to share the daily experience with my new apple imac. In doing so I will be adding some interesting information either I find on the net or create by myself. Obviously I have neither any influence nor control over any of the external links you find on this blog. Happy Reading!

Mac Books

Since I am quite new to Apple I have decided to read some books about OSX. The first book I bought is The Missing Manual. I would recommend it for a beginner or an intermediate level user. The Missing Manual covers many topics that a Mac user should know and it accompanies lots of screenshots to make things simple.

I have borrowed Mac OS X Tiger Unleashed just to see whether it has anything interesting to offer. I am positively surprised the way it is written. Being a Linux user for a long time this book looks quite familiar. It is perhaps not The Book for a beginner but quite useful for someone who likes to explore OSX deeper. I haven's seen "Mac OS X for Unix Geeks" but some of my friends seems to be liking it a lot.

The Mac Xcode 2 Book is the third book I would recommend to an absolute beginner in programming. There are detail explanations to relatively few topics so it is definitely not for a hardcore programmer. But if you are about to start learning some useful tips about programming under OSX, this book has some things to offer. It also contains lots of screen shots (I think some them are not even necessary). It is also relatively expensive for its content.

This is my personal opinion. If you are interested, click on the relevant links to find out more.
