Summary

Mac OS X is not the Mac OS of the 1990s. It is an entirely new creation that brings together the best parts of the traditional Mac OS with a Unix underpinning. This chapter demonstrated the use of single-user and verbose boot modes, introduced tools for backing up your system, and automating system processes.

Over the course of the next few years, Mac OS X will likely mature into a system that can be documented entirely without ever seeing a command line (unless you want to!). For now, we hope that this book has provided a balanced view of what you can do through the GUI and via the command line. Best of luck!
