Summary

Mac OS X uses the same compression and encoding methods that have been widespread on the Macintosh system for the last decade. In addition, it also supports Unix standards such as .tar and .gz. The included StuffIt Expander application can deal with most common archive types, and makes it simple for even the first-time user to start downloading software for his library.

Although a new operating system, Mac OS X already has many applications that utilize its cutting-edge graphics capabilities in ways never seen before on a desktop computer. Although this chapter contains a list of interesting software, it should serve only as a starting point for exploring the possibilities of the operating system.
