Chapter 2. Installing Mac OS X > Evaluating Your Needs

Evaluating Your Needs

Evaluating whether or not you actually need OS X is probably the hardest step to make before upgrading. For many users, the desire to upgrade is based on the supposition that “if it's newer, it's better.” For Mac OS X, that is not necessarily the case. It is my goal to make it clear that Mac OS X might not be for everyone at the current time. This doesn't mean that you should never consider upgrading, or that Mac OS X is a bad product, just that it might not be ready to suit your needs.

Apple has created a completely amazing operating system that is getting rave reviews throughout the industry. I was taken aback recently when I picked up one of the half-dozen “enterprise computing” weeklies that arrive at my house, only to see a Mac OS X cover story. It has been years since the Mac has received positive press—especially from sources that usually focus on the Windows platform.
