Part: II Inside Mac OS X > Installing Third-Party Applications

Chapter 8. Installing Third-Party Applications

In This Chapter

Mac OS X comes with enough software and tools to keep an avid e-mail reader or Web browser happy for quite awhile. For the rest of us, however, it is lacking in many of the creative tools that have made the Macintosh platform so appealing. This chapter will attempt to rectify the situation by pointing out several stand-out applications that are available for the new operating system. Many of these will be unfamiliar because they come from a NeXT/OpenStep heritage—not traditional Macintosh developers. In addition, we'll take a look at how these applications are typically installed.

This chapter serves as a point of demarcation within the contents of this book. It effectively ends the coverage of using Mac OS X and begins more advanced configuration topics. I recommend reading through this chapter and spending some time getting to know your system before continuing.
