Why This Chapter?

When the last edition of Sad Macs was published, Mac OS 8.0 had not yet been released. Since then, we have seen the release of Mac OS 8.0, 8.1, 8.5, 8.5.1, 8.6, 9.0 and 9.0.4. Mac OS X Server is also out. Within the next few months, Mac OS X will be released. We have seen new software technologies emerge, such as Game Sprockets, OpenGL and QuickTime Streaming. And we have seen the death of once-touted technologies such as OpenDoc and QuickDraw GX. There can be no doubt that the Mac landscape is radically different than it was three years ago.

Information about much of what is new in these latest OS updates—from Sherlock to Navigation Services to the Network Browser to the new Mac OS Installer—are integrated throughout Sad Macs. But that still leaves more than a few new topics that did not find a comfortable spot elsewhere in this book. That's the purpose of this chapter. It's a collection of troubleshooting tips specific to these latest OS releases. If you don't find what you are looking for here, check out the appropriate section of the rest of this book (for example, check Chapter 7 for printing problems, even if they are specific to Mac OS 9).
