III. The Components of Mac OS X > 10. The Free Programs

Chapter 10. The Free Programs

Right out of the box, Mac OS X comes with a healthy assortment of nearly 50 freebies: programs for sending email, writing documents, doing math, even playing games. Some are dressed-up versions of Mac programs that have been around for years. Others, though, are new programs that not only show off some of Mac OS X’s most dramatic new technologies, but also let you get real work done without having to invest in additional software.

Note

Several of the freebie programs described here are also the subject of other books in this series, including iMovie 6 & iDVD: The Missing Manual and iPhoto 6: The Missing Manual. By popular request (and, in some cases, indignant request), this chapter now includes concise crash courses in these programs. But the full scoop on each of these powerful programs—including tips, tricks, customization advice, troubleshooting chapters, and so on—requires a whole other book.
