Part: III Advanced User and Network Sett... > Customizing User and System Settings

Chapter 8. Customizing User and System Settings

IN THIS CHAPTER

Mac users wouldn't be happy without the ability to customize their systems. Although Mac OS X is a secure multiuser operating system, it gives individuals a great deal of freedom to customize their settings. Even though some restrictions might initially seem odd to users more familiar with a single-user OS, in some ways, Mac OS X users have considerably more freedom than was available in the past. As in versions of the Mac OS before Mac OS X, different desktop backgrounds, screen savers, color profiles, and even speech recognition settings can be customized. However, with Mac OS X, these settings can be customized on a per-user basis so that from any individual's point of view, the machine appears to be configured to exactly his favorite state.
