2.1. Logging In

What happens next depends on whether you are the Mac's sole proprietor or have to share it with other people in an office, school, or household.

  • If it's your own Mac, and you've already been through the Mac OS X setup wizard (the "What's your time zone? What's your name?" screens that appear the first time you turn on a new Mac), no big deal. You arrive at the Mac OS X desktop.

  • If it's a shared Mac, you may encounter the Login dialog box, shown in Figure 2-1. Click your name in the list, type your password, and then click Log In (or press Return). You arrive at the desktop. Chapter 12 covers much more of this business of user accounts and logging in.
