Part: VII Mac OS X: Appendixes > Moving to and Maintaining Mac OS X

Moving to and Maintaining Mac OS X

If you are completely new to Mac OS X, making the change from previous versions of the Mac OS to Mac OS X is a big jump—Mac OS X is a quantum leap over any other upgrade Apple has produced. If you are upgrading to Mac OS X version 10.2, aka Jaguar, from earlier versions of Mac OS X, the leap is just as “quantum” in some areas, such as networking, but is recommended in all areas.

As you can probably guess from the previous paragraphs, there are two paths to Mac OS X. One is for those users who are making the jump from Mac OS 9.x.x or earlier; the other is for those who are moving from a previous version of Mac OS X. Not coincidentally, there are two major sections in this chapter that describe how to make the transition to version 10.2. The section called “Moving to Version 10.2 from Mac OS 9.x.x or Earlier” will guide you through the process of moving from older Mac OS versions to OS X. The section called “Moving to Version 10.2 from Previous Versions of Mac OS X” will help you if you are already using a version of Mac OS X. Obviously, you should skip whichever section is not applicable to your situation.
