Part: III User-Level OS X Configuration > Additional System Components

Chapter 11. Additional System Components

In This Chapter

Mac users wouldn't be happy without the ability to customize their system. Although Mac OS X is a secure multi-user operating system, it allows individuals a great deal of freedom in customizing their settings. Users can install and choose between different desktop backgrounds, screen savers, color profiles, and even set up speech recognition. Although the notion of control panels has given way to the Mac OS X System Preferences panel, the idea is still very much the same. Using the System Preferences, users can choose an individual panel to change a series of related configuration options.

This chapter covers the available System Preferences panels, how they work, and what they will change on your system. If there are any areas of the operating system that you'd like to fine-tune, this is the place to look.
